The names "trunk" and "branches" are just conventions, they don't have
any significance to Subversion. So you should decide what you'd like
the layout of the repository to be, then rearrange things to achieve
that. For example, if you want the conventional


you'd do it by using "svn move" to move all of /svn/Sumo to
/svn/Sumo/trunk, then creating /svn/Sum/branches, then copying
/svn/Sumo/trunk to /svn/Sumo/branches/branch.

But you could just create


and copy /svn/Sumo there. (You're probably better off in the long run
to follow one of the conventional organizations, but it's really up to you.)
