> What sort of layout does your repository have?

"none" would be the preferred choice.  This repository has effectively
no tagging or branching.  The layout looks like:


And so forth.  I just want the "projects/" subdirectory.  I've tried:

$ bzr svn-import svn+

This gets me an error:

bzr: ERROR: The specified path is inside a branch. Specify a different
URL or a different repository layout (see also 'bzr help svn-layout').

$ bzr svn-import svn+ --layout trunk1

This looks better:

Importing branches with prefix /projects/   0KB/s |
Using repository layout: trunk1

...but I end up with an empty directory (and "bzr co" doesn't work).
I also tried "--layout root", which leads me again to the "The
specified path is inside a branch." error.
