RE: repository question

[This was already answered, but I'm sending this anyway for my
recommendation about appendices. Also, it wasn't noted where the
documentation was (as Jack may also not have DAV setup either).]

Interestingly enough, the documentation for creating a new repository is
under the documentation for setting up DAV... notes/dav_setup.txt . It
took me a while to find it as well (and I was even _looking_ at that
file as I knew ahead of time I would need to setup DAV). It's all the
way at the bottom, tacked on like an appendix (hehe, looking at it now
it _is_ an appendix... "ADDENDUM 1: Setting up the Repository Itself").

One important rule of appendices is that you never have one that isn't
referenced from the source text. Step 8 should say "Setting up
/absolute/path/to/repository is discussed in Addendum 1.".

On top of that, notes/dav_setup should be mentioned under INSTALL :-P.

Subject: repository question

Hello again,

At the moment I have release 442, and have successfully compiled and
installed it with all adjunct programs like Berkeley DB and Neon. I am
having problem adding files to repository (if I even have one set up at
all). When I enter:

svn add foo.c

I get no such file or directory ./.svn/entries. My guess is that when I
checkout files, these directory and file are created; but since I never
check out, they aren't. So my question is:

- How do I create a repository? Do I do like CVS, where I export a
directory $CVSROOT, and all incoming adds will go into this directory?

I have went thorugh the info pages in doc, but couldn't find the

Thanks for your help
