glossary of terms from red-bean book?

Is there a glossary somewhere of placeholder terms in the red-bean book?
For example
  under the svnadmin section, there is a line:

svnadmin hotcopy REPOS_PATH NEW_REPOS_PATH

I'm curious if there is place where "REPOS_PATH" is defined. It seems to
be the real path to the repository, which means it only makes sense on
the server that hosts the repository.

Similarly, under "Path-Based Authorization" section, there is the phrase:
"the value of the section-names are either of the form [repos-name:path] "

Thus I'm trying to find the real meaning, definition, etc. of "repos-name"

This seems to be refering to the /calc subdirectory in the sample
repository layout, but its not explicitly stated.

My apache config has the line
  SVNPath /var/svnhome
and /var/svnhome is the root of the subversion storage area.
What is confusing me is that unlike with CVS, where the CVSROOT has
physical subdirectories, in svn these are only logical

Also, related question, is there a local command, such as an svnlook
option that can list all the top level 'directories' in a repository?
You can get the result remotely using
    svn list http:...

Are these 'directories" the same as "repos-name" above?
