Use Windows Explorer to create a temporary directory structure on your PC file system, that can be imported into the Subversion repository to create a new repository sub-tree.  The resulting sub-tree can then be used to control the package files for your Enterprise Architect model.

The directory structure should look like this:



Open a Windows command prompt, navigate to "tempDir" and issue the Subversion command import.

For example;

 C:\Documents and Settings\user> cd \tempDir

C:\tempDir> svn import .  --message "Repository Initialization"


Subversion repository administration basics


Delete the temporary directory structure.  That is, delete "tempDir" and all its contents.



  • After the import is finished, the original tree is not converted into a Subversion working copy; you should delete the temporary structure and check out a fresh working copy of the tree
  • The process described above can also be performed using TortoiseSVN's Repository Browser, which provides commands that allow you to simply create new folders directly in the repository
