How to import an existing project in Subversion
I always forget how to import an existing project directory in Subversion, so here are the steps.
First, create the directory in the repository:
svn mkdir file:///path/to/repos/mydir
Second, checkout the repos directory:
cd /path/to/mydir cd .. svn checkout file:///path/to/repos/mydir
Third, add the directory content:
cd mydir svn add *
Last, perform the initial import:
svn commit -m "Initial import."
