Re: installing SVN after development has started

Thanks to everyone for the quick response to my question. I have
tried to use svn_load_dirs.pl and it worked well for my first attempt,
but for my second, it is failing with the following message:

Running /opt/subversion/bin/svn propset svn:executable --file /tmp/
svn_load_dirs_077Tc2Ofvj/iAquVYI0mo modules/jsp-2.1/target/glassfish/
Running /opt/subversion/bin/svn rm --targets /tmp/
Running /opt/subversion/bin/svn propget svn:eol-style pom.xml@BASE
/opt/subversion/bin/svn_load_dirs.pl: /opt/subversion/bin/svn propget
svn:eol-style pom.xml@BASE failed with this output:
svn: 'pom.xml@BASE' is not under version control

After the first time I thought I had made a mistake with the
initial import, so I cleaned up and repeated the process
carefully. But I still get the error. I am not aware of having
done anything special to pom.xml: it should have got imported
with all the other stuff.

Can anyone help with this please?
