No... the repository is a database. It stores your files safe and
sound in an internal representation (specifically, as one file per
revision [not one file per file] in the db/revs and db/revprops
directories). Your individual files are not stored as individual
files on your hard disk, though.

Here's one recent explanation of this format:

That's for the default FSFS repository storage type, by the way; the
older BDB repository backend stores things differently. But in the
end, it's not important how Subversion stores your files, just that
it does so.

P.S: Don't forget to "reply to all" so your message goes to the
mailing list too.
