RE: Re: Svn url on windows question

So is the absolute path syntax only supported with file:// protocol?

And making the changes below would mean I would have to set the root
folder for the svnserve command, correct?

There are a couple of things wrong with your syntax.

When using svnserve, your command line can't include the absolute path
to the repository file system.

You want:

$ cd path\to\stuff\to\import
$ svn import . svn://babel/test/TestImport

(assuming that the repo is actually at babel/test).
