You seem to have done 6 other things in the repository before
importing this project. "svn log -v -r1:6 url://of/your/repository"
will show you what those things are.

Subversion does not have per-project revision numbers. (Subversion
also has no concept of a "project"; it just versions files and
directories.) Subversion has per-repository revision numbers. Whether
you make just one repository to hold all your projects, or individual
repositories for each project, is up to you. I prefer the former, but
others prefer the latter. There are pros and cons to each approach.
