Example

This shows the beginning of loading a repository from a backup file (made, of course, with svk admin dump):

$ svk admin load /usr/local/svn/restored < repos-backup
<<< Started new txn, based on original revision 1
     * adding path : test ... done.
     * adding path : test/a ... done.
…

Or if you want to load into a subdirectory:

$ svk admin load --parent-dir new/subdir/for/project /usr/local/svn/restored < repos-backup
<<< Started new txn, based on original revision 1
     * adding path : test ... done.
     * adding path : test/a ... done.
…
