Since it is a new repository and you don't have any history, you are
complicating way too much.

I suggest you do it like this:

0 - do a full backup of all your files!!!!! :)

Create directories on disk:

Copy your v1.0 files into /tmp/repo-imp/tags/v1.0

Copy your v2.0 files into /tmp/repo-imp/trunk/

cd /tmp/repo-imp/

svn import . svn://host/repository -m "Initial import"

delete /tmp/repo-imp since it is no longer needed

checkout the trunk where you need it

checkout the v1.1 branch where you need it

continue with the development
