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
repositories.

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

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch05s04.html#svn-ch-5-sect-6.1

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

Thanks to all,

Henning
