Re: some gaps in my subversion knowledge

Repository structure is just recommendation. No more. That is why it is
working. Your project is kept in Berkeley database in repository, that
is why you can't find the trace of your project. Most of all it is
compressed in repository, that is why repository size is less than your
project. Besides .svn folder in your working copy of project take
significant place.

However, that mailing list is for other questions. You should signup
user mailing list: users@subversion.tigris.org and read that:
