So you're trying to make a "template repository" for your users to
use? Ok, you can do that. Set up your repository how you want it, then
"svnadmin dump -rHEAD /path/to/repo > /path/to/dumpfile". This will
dump only a single revision, representing the way the repository looks
at HEAD. This "template dumpfile" can then be turned into a new
repository with "svnadmin create /path/to/newrepo && svnadmin load /
path/to/newrepo --ignore-uuid < /path/to/dumpfile". The new repository
will be at revision 1. (Revision 0 is empty in every repository.)
