Hi Fred,

Didn't you get some error message from the svn client?

Maybe what's missing is a step to create the "quadrature" directory in the
before you try to import a file into that directory.

one way to do it: svn mkdir file:///m/svn/repos/quadrature -m "Creating
quadrature project"
(the "-m ..." part will skip the emacs opening up)

another way is to import the entire directory, assuming it exists the way
you want it in the repository.
