This co is still wrong, mkdir-ing the directory is the way to go. What's
the error message if you replace the svn co by mkdir?

Sorry, I obviously was inattentive while reading your original mail. There
is no point of chaching out or exporting anything from your repository in
any case as you just created it - it just cannot contain any data.

There's no need to invoke svn at all.

That's nonsense, of course, the "fsvs init $repos" you used is correct.

No, that's just plain wrong. I don't know what I was thinking about when I
suggested that.

However, a mistake you did was calling "fsvs init" in a directory other
that the directory which should be managed. You need to cd to / to
manage /dir and /skipme.

See the attached script, a modified version of yours. As I'm not testing
things as root and thus can't reate directories in system directories
as "/", I made all tests relative to the current directory.

See the attached file.
