Creating Subversion repository

The main Subversion repository is easily created with:

Example 2.1. Repository creation example.

$ svnadmin create repo-directory

For our example, we choose the name svn-deb-repo and put it in /home/user.

If you plan to keep many packages in the one repository including upstream tarballs, consider to put it on a hard disk with much free space and good performance (especially short disk access times) since the repository will grow and the filesystem may become fragmented over time.
