In case the list replies were not enough. The trunk/tags/branches are just a convention, but a good one. The recommend course
create the SVN repo
$ svnadmin create /u6/repos/svn/myrep
NOTE: I use the extra 'svn' directory because I also have some legacy cvs repositories that have not yet be converted to svn.
make the directory structure
If you're using Windows
THEN, import your direcrories into trunk and use that for normal development. You may end up with many repositories with empty tags and branches, but so-what. It doesn't cost much and anyone else browsing your repos will be able to figure out how things are laid out.
# from dir with the code to be placed in myrep
mv myrep myrep.orig
Now, work in 'myrep' directory (which is svn managed)
Hope this helps.

I'm trying to configure my Tortoise installation to begin using it with on of my web projects. I've installed tortoise and have tried creating repositories and it "seems" to be working more or less.
