(I'm resending this reply because I did not cc the list in it the first

Yes! a local import is what I wanted to do. I just learned the name for it.
Somewhere in the docs I saw a reference to using ssh to access a remote
resource. I'll try that later since I don't have a web server setup for
this. For now I wanted to learn the process in a local setting.

I attempted to checkout the xdatadir a bit after I posted my initial
question and it looks like it added the contents of the directory, but the
status still shows the question mark. How does one interpret that? Or, how
do you correct that?

$ svn checkout file:///home/foot/svnrepo1 xdatadir/
A xdatadir/dir1
A xdatadir/dir1/file1_dir1
A xdatadir/dir1/file2_dir1
A xdatadir/dir2
A xdatadir/dir2/file1_dir2
A xdatadir/dir2/file2_dir1
A xdatadir/dir2/file2_dir2
Checked out revision 1.

The status still shows that xdatadir is not under version control.

$ svn status
! .
? dir1
? xdatadir
? dir2

And also, why does 'svn list' shows dir1 and dir2, leftovers from the first
$ svn list

I guess the important question is: where does subversion keep track of what
has been done? how do you "clean" the history? I thought that deleting the
repository and the /home/jdoe/xdatadir/.svn directory would take care of
