That's not how revision numbers work in Subversion. A revision number
is global for a repository, and it is simply the number of changes
that have been made to a repository, nothing more.

A revision number in a Subversion repository is not a dotted number
like that (and like in CVS), but a monotonically increasing integer.

If you want each project to have its own revision numbers, you must
put each project in its own repository. But before you do that, I
would seriously ask yourself why you care what the revision number
is. It's an internal Subversion mechanism for storing your changes,
which happens to be exposed at some points, but it really shouldn't
matter to you what format Subversion's revision numbers take. Any
publicly-facing version numbers for your project should be separate
from the revision number and invented by you, for example in the
names of your tags and branches.
