"Importing Existing Files Into a Repository

"When starting a new project, you'll probably want to import existing files into it. For a project currently in /home/user/myproject:

"cd /home/user
svn import myproject file:///usr/share/svn/repos/
myproject -m "Initial import"

"(This will take a little while if you have many files.) The -m switch attaches the log message. If you leave this out you'll be prompted for a message. Your current working copy of these files -- the directory you imported them from -- is not a Subversion-controlled copy. Before you do any more work on these files, you must check them back out of Subversion, using the command: svn checkout file:///usr/share/svn/repos/myproject

"This will create a myproject subdirectory in your current directory and check out all the files from that project into it."
