authz question: svn: Authorization failed

This may be a dumb question, so I apologize in advance, and since subversion
is new to me, I expect to be forgiven :).
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

svn import proj svn://geetcvs/test2 -m 'initial import'
svn: Authorization failed

I have
1. svnserve running as user svnuser:
svnuser 22645 1 0 14:56 ? 00:00:00 /usr/local/bin/svnserve -d
-r /usr/local/svn
2. all files under /usr/local/svn belong to svnuser
geetcvs:/usr/local/svn # ls -la /usr/local/svn
total 20
drwxrwxr-x 4 svnuser epd 4096 2007-08-13 13:55 .
drwxr-xr-x 14 by38575 root 4096 2007-08-07 16:03 ..
-rwxrwxr-x 1 svnuser epd 1052 2007-08-13 14:56 .bash_history
drwxrwxr-x 7 svnuser epd 4096 2007-08-07 14:58 test1
drwxr-xr-x 7 svnuser root 4096 2007-08-13 13:55 test2

3. /usr/local/svn/test2/conf/svnserve.conf contains:

# grep -v '^#' svnserve.conf
[general]
authz-db = authz
realm = My First Repository

4. /usr/local/svn/test2/conf/authz contains:

[groups]

[/]
* = rw

many thanks in advance,
Boris
