Re: [Savannah-help-public] Getting started with svn: authorization faile

Hi Jeremy,

Sorry for the delayed (and useless) reply.

    I'm pretty new to using subversion, so I don't know why any write
    operation I try returns "authorization failed", whether I use --user
    and --password or not.  I created my project, changed it from CVS to
    SVN, and according to the subversion documentation, 'svn import path
    URL' should let me create a repository, but as I said, it fails

That's true in general, but svn import doesn't work with savannah :(. explains the
process for importing a dump at savannah (as far as I know -- I've never
actually done it).

If you're just starting a repo from scratch and don't have a ton of svn
history you want to preserve, you don't need to do this.  Just use svn
checkout svn+ssh:..., exact command is shown on the "Source Code" page,
copy your files into the new hierarchy, svn add them, then svn commit.

If this isn't it, please post the exact commands you're running, and the
exact responses.

Hope this helps,
