svn import — Commit an unversioned file or tree into the repository.
svn import [PATH] URL
Recursively commit a copy of
PATH is omitted,
.” is assumed. Parent
directories are created in the repository as necessary.
Unversionable items such as device files and pipes are
ignored even if
This imports the local directory
trunk/misc in your repository. The
trunk/misc need not exist
before you import into it—svn
import will recursively create directories for
$ svn import -m "New import" myproj \ http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/trunk/misc Adding myproj/sample.txt … Transmitting file data ......... Committed revision 16.
Be aware that this will not
create a directory named
the repository. If that's what you want, simply add
myproj to the end of the URL:
$ svn import -m "New import" myproj \ http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/trunk/misc/myproj Adding myproj/sample.txt … Transmitting file data ......... Committed revision 16.
After importing data, note that the original tree is not under version control. To start working, you still need to svn checkout a fresh working copy of the tree.
