The import command is just like a 'copy' command. It takes two
arguments: a source and a destination. The first argument (source) is
something that exists in front of you (a file or a directory) that you
wish to copy into the repository. The second argument (destination) is
a place to upload things: it must be a URL that points into a

So, for example, if I have a directory 'trunk' full of files and other
directories, then the command

   svn import trunk http://host/repos/

will upload the 'trunk' directory to the top level of my repository.
