My bad. I originally used "http://myserver" as the URL, then realized
that you actually gave the URL as "https://svn/repos". I changed some,
but not others.

Not instead, really. Just as a way of getting the link back into the
visible portion of the tree. Once you do the copy to either the
branches or tags directory, you could then do a checkout or export to
get a copy of the repository locally. That way, you could make changes
and commit them back into the tree.

If you merely checkout an earlier revision of the directory tree, you
cannot make any changes and commit them back to the repository.
