Subversion has no notion of a "project." There are just Subversion
repositories, which contain files and directories. You can elect to
either create a separate repository for each project, which you then
have to do manually with "svnadmin create <repo>", or you can store
all projects in a single repository, in which case then you can just
import into it which will create a new directory in the repository
for your new project. There are arguments for and against both
strategies; you'll have to decide which you want to use. It's not
super-easy, but also not impossible, to change from single-repo to
multi-repo, or vice-versa, later.
