The error message is confusing. It is not possible to "svn copy" from
one repository to another. Depending on what you are trying to
accomplish you might consider:

(1) svn:externals
     http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.advanced.externals.html

(2) svn export ; svn import
     http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.ref.svn.c.export.html
     http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.ref.svn.c.import.html

(3) svnadmin dump ; svndumpfilter ; svnadmin load
     http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.dump.html
     http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.load.html
