>From looking at the name of your working copy, you seem maybe confused

The directory you call /tmp/repos is not, in fact, a repository, but
rather a working copy. Even if you know that in your head, it's
better when posting examples to the list to use some other name, so
*we* don't get confused, nor mistakenly think you are confused.

Anyway, don't try to check out ('co') over your existing working
copy. You need to use 'svn update' instead. Checkout is for creating
new working copies; update is for bringing existing working copies
up-to-date with respect to the working copy.
