I have just couple of comments on the first chapter.
I just installed subversion on my laptop and borrowed a
copy of the book from a friend.
Under "A Quick Start" the command "svnadmin create /path/to/repos"
doesn't work as written. I get the error message...
svn: Repository creation failed
svn: Could not create top-level directory
svn: Can't create directory 'path/to/repo': No such file or directory
If there's a way to create the directories recursively I would suggest
adding that to this example. Otherwise maybe something like
"svnadmin create /path-to-repos"
There also seems to be a typo on the next page. It reads
"$ svn checkout file://path/to/repos/trunk project"
and I think there's a missing '/' after file: and should read...
"$ svn checkout file:///path/to/repos/trunk project"
Thanks and I look forward to reading the rest of the book
and playing with subversion. Maybe when I get a bit farther
along I'll start submitting patches instead. :)
