Re: svn import -> invalid url

Hi Martin,

fine that works :-) It's simple and logical!!

So the readme.txt from the distribution is wrong:

----- schnipp
IV. QUICKSTART GUID
...
      2. Creating a Repository
...
      After the repository is created, you can initially import data
      into it, using libsvn_ra_local (invoked by using a 'file' URL):

          $ svn import file:///usr/local/svn/repos1 some/local/dir/

      The above example imports the contents of some/local/dir/ right
      into the root of the repository.

----- schnapp

Realy a pitfall for newbies like me.

thank you !
