It doesn't sound like this is what you want. The tip from the
mailing list will give you a repository containing only the first
revision of your new repository (which contains 9 revisions).

Presumably, you'd like all the changes you made in setting up your
repository (9 revisions worth) to be sort of "flattened" down to 1
revision. At least that's what it sounds like.

The short answer is: **don't bother**.

The longer answer is: Every change to the repository creates a new
revision. All the revision number does is count these revisions You
happened to take 9 revisions to get the repository "set up". *Who
cares?* Don't try to force a meaning onto the revision number that
it doesn't have.

For the obsessive compulsive: You *could* "svn export" your
repository and then re-import the result into a new repository.
