SVN::Repos only works on local repositories. To get the latest
revision number for a remote repository you need to use SVN::Ra (the
repository access library). This is actually the example at the top
of SVN::Ra:

    require SVN::Core;
    require SVN::Ra;
    my $ra = SVN::Ra->new ('file:///tmp/svmtest');
    print $ra->get_latest_revnum ();

Just replace the 'file:///tmp/svmtest' part with the URL of your repository.
