I have read the svnbook 1.7 on the svnsync usage:
and I have followed its instructions all along to the end.

So I have configured the target mirror server (Ubuntu 16.04) such that
it is accessible on a domain name via https and I have prepared the

revision 0.

When done on Ubuntu I moved over to the source server (Windows Server

So on the Windows Server command line I issued the commands from the

First, initialize the sync - but I see errors (privacy data mangled):

I have seen this before when accessing a selfsigned server for the

svnsync: E170011: Repository moved permanently to

What does this mean? I have *not* requested a move, just to initialize
syncronization of the source localserver to the destination mirror

Not knowing what to do next I tried the synchronize command:

E:\>svnsync synchronize https://xxx.yyy.com/svn/bosse
svnsync: E170011: Repository moved permanently to

Apparently something has gone wrong, but what?
And what does "moved permanently" mean?
AFAICT nothing has moved or copied...

If I google the visible error message not a single hit I get is
referring to command svnsync...
