Aha ok, thanks for the lead.
I'm a cvs user, so I think I'm somewhat tainted by how it has me
trained, I've been going through the book, but I find it a little
lacking so far, though that is just as likely due to me looking in the
wrong place for the information.
So how do I do it if I want the test project to be one of many projects
I can check out of that single repository? Would I just add it
initially to the repository using:
svn import /home/whoughton/test file:///home/whoughton/repo/test -m
and then checkout using:
svn checkout file:///home/whoughton/repo/test/trunk
Again, thanks much for the info, I really appreciate it. I knew svn
used the BDB but I thought that was just for versioning info, not for
the files themselves I guess. Good to know.
