That warning is of course completely correct. Your repository
directory is not a working copy, nor should it be; running "svn
status" in your repository directory is not useful.

I don't understand why if your checkout command referenced "ble" the
error message references "blenglishcafe".

Bogdan is right: the URL you're trying to check out from and the path
you passed to "svnserve -d" are not compatible. You told svnserve
your repositories are located in /home/svn, therefore you cannot
include "/home/svn" in the URL you're checking out.

"svnlook tree svn://" can't have worked;
when I run that, it says "'svn://' is a URL
when it should be a path"
