I thought that the server root was controlled by a server conf file
rather than it being some directory possible to check out.
Is it also possible to put files in the root?
When I used cvs2svn I had errors when there were files in the root of
the CVS repo so I had to remove them. My understanding was that the
top level stuff *had* to be directories rather than files....

>svn checkout ${REPOSITORY_ROOT_URL} ${WC_PATH} --depth empty

Is this how it would work? :

svn co https://server.svn.repo/ top --depth empty
cd top
svn propedit svn:auto-props ./

editor pops up and I enter all of the lines like:
*.c = svn:eol-style=native
*.cpp = svn:eol-style=native

when closing the editor the values are applied to the working copy
directory itself?

svn commit -m "log message"

I.e. can I specify the target as the current dir like shown above?
