That was it - for some reason I was thinking it would have been making
changes directly into the repository.

You either need to do svn mkdir using a URL so that it is created directly
in the repository. Such as:

svn mkdir -m "Initial" file:///repos/Project svn mkdir -m "Initial"
file:///repos/Project/trunk svn mkdir -m "Initial"


Or, if running the mkdir on your local WC, you need to have a WC. This
would mean you have run svn checkout to create a WC. You could checkout the
empty root of your repository:

svn co file:///repos

Then run svn mkdir locally on the WC followed by a single commit. The error
is saying that the command is being run locally in a directory that is not a
WC. To make it a WC, it needs to have been created by checkout.
