Create a new Repository Sub-tree

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
