Ha! Yes, some information was missing: subclipse did not create a real
repository as we would do with svnadmin create /... etc., it really
only created new folders for the projects in the Berkeley DB. To get rid
of my testdata I simply moved that folder and created the root
repository again, problem solved. Missleading was the term root
repository, I got it from the installation mail of my provider - there
is nor root repository, the root repository is just one among other

Now that is clear the questions come more to the point of


which will for me be multiple repositories because I don't like global
revision numbers.

Thanks to all,
