Another message explained that (though without the example command).
I deleted and recreated my repository and did that, and it works great.

If I *didn't* put my stuff one level down, and then I wanted to create
a branch by copying, would it cause a problem? In other words, if
I did this:
  svn copy svn+ssh://svn.example.com/ svn+ssh://svn.example.com/branch/foo

Even if that doesn't cause a problem, then if I later want to create a
second branch:
  svn copy svn+ssh://svn.example.com/ svn+ssh://svn.example.com/branch/bar

Won't that second branch also include a branch of the first branch
(branch/foo)? If so, it seems like it would be a *very* good idea for the
book and man page to stronly discourage imports (and checkins) at the top
level.

Also, it would be nice if the book would explain the "-t" option to
svnserve.

I'd be willing to work on the proposed doc changes if you like, though
since I'm a Subversion novice I'd want someone to check my work before
committing it.

Thanks!
Eric
