Because that is what "Repository has standard layout" means, i.e. you


See the subversion book for reasons to follow this layout.

That's bad, but I have no idea why that happens.

There's no checkout needed. I.e. if you create a directory locally and
add it to the version control (and check this in) you don't need to
check it out afterwards.  SVN already knows it's under version control
and will update it if needed.

Well,  a back button would need to remove the existing directory from
the repository, if it created one. Should be rather easy to do, unless
I'm overlooking something.


Look afar and see the end from the beginning.
