The Daily Use Guide for TortoiseSVN suggests:
--------------8<----- snip
Before you import your project into a repository you should:


      Remove all files which are not needed to build the project (temporary
files, files which are generated by a compiler e.g. *.obj, compiled
binaries, ...)

      Organize the files in folders and subfolders. Although it is possible
to rename/move files later it is highly recommended to get your project's
structure straight before importing!

It shouldn't.

Should be OK.

Do you really want to version the output of your project? Every time you
compile, you will have a modified working copy, whether you changed the
source or not. If you're using TortoiseSVN, this behavior is designed into
the tool, and is done so for your benefit. You have the option of
deselecting all the items it intends to delete, if you really want to
version your binary output.

I strongly suggest that you test with some non-essential files until you
understand what Subversion expects from you and how to use it to your
greatest benefit.

Hope that helps!
