Wrong. I don't have to. It's a brand new repository, remember?

Wrong. Have you at least tested that? I did, and it works. I can do
checkouts from it.

The information provided with Subversion doesn't mention a case where
the source repository requires authentication. There are --username

destination repository (I'm not sure). By the way, I have read the
