This will help, if you did an initial import with your etc:

Other options is that you do an in-place import:

And please remember, that subversion stores pristine copies in .svn
directories: take care of permissions of those files, so that ie. your
shadow won't show up from "/etc/.svn/text-base/shadow.svn-base"

Also svn won't store permissions, so record them or use eg. asvn:
