No, I want to recreate the repository with 'svnadmin create
...Project1', 'svnadmin create ...Project2' to avoid revision number
changes between two completely different projects. If I would create
only one repository, via 'svnadmin create ...' and then import two
projects, changes in project 1 would increase the revision number, which
is also the revision number of project 2. So maybe project 2 will have
revision number 11 even if nothing was changed in this project, but in
project 1.

"Clean" means to me, that after this 'rm' nothing will be left from my
"old" repository, as I wouldn't have created it. So my question was in
particular, if Subversion stores repository information at an other
location, too.
