In that case, because the project is already in a subversion working
copy, you need to Add not Import. Import is used for bringing data from
outside a working copy into SVN. Add is used within a working copy.

If you Added the project folders, you would not need to checkout.

So now you have done a checkout within a checkout. The parent directory
is trying to control child folders, but the child folders all have
independent links to the repository and aren't aware that there is a
parent above them.
