At this time, import does not convert your source directory into a
Subversion working copy. That is, in order to turn a directory foo
and all its children into a versioned tree, you would currently do
either:

(1) - Create an empty repository
    - Check it out to say, 'wc'
    - Copy all of foo's children into 'wc'
    - `svn add --recursive wc/*'
    - `svn ci wc'
    - Remove the foo directory
    - Rename 'wc' to 'foo'

(2) - Create an empty repository
    - `svn import <repos_url> foo'
    - Remove the foo directory
    - Check out foo from the repository
