This one bit me a couple of times too, until I figured out what I was doing
wrong. Note the files being added include the "tmp" directory, indicating
that you checked in the "tmp" directory as well as your source code. That
means that the code actually resides in <path>/svn-repos/tmp/orderform/trunk
in the repository, instead of where you intended it to be.

When you imported it, you could have changed to the tmp directory, then
imported from there, using "." as the path:

'svn import . <path>/svn-repos'

Alternatively, you can do 'svn co <path>/svn-repos/tmp/orderform/trunk .' to
get the files from where they actually reside.
