"Project" is not a word that has any concrete meaning for Subversion.
In a Subversion, there are just directories. You may assign
particular meaning to particular directories, but that meaning is not
codified anywhere; it's just by convention.

If you have decided to use one repository for multiple projects, for
example, then you might lay out your repository directories like this:

/project1/
     trunk/
     branches/
     tags/
/project2/
     trunk/
     branches/
     tags/

And so on. And if you check out /project1/trunk/ from the repository,
then what you have on your hard drive would be called a working copy
of project1's trunk.
