Getting started with Subversion

Today I thought about how to have different revisions of my project documentation which is a condition precedent to my degree.
After weighting up CVS and Subversion I decided to use Subversion.
It wasn't such short like it looks here to get all the needed informations together. Anyways, here it goes:

# apt-get install subversion subversion-tools
# mkdir /advdrv/svn
# svnadmin --fs-type fsfs create /advdrv/svn
# addgroup subversion
   Adding group `subversion' (1003)...
# chgrp -R subversion /advdrv/svn
# chmod -R o-rwx /advdrv/svn
# chmod -R g+rw /advdrv/svn
# chmod g+s /advdrv/svn
# adduser waja subversion
   Adding user `waja' to group `subversion'...
# adduser --system --home /advdrv/svn/ subversion
   adduser: Warning: The home dir you specified already exists.
   Adding system user `subversion'...
   Adding new user `subversion' (112) with group `nogroup'.
   Home directory `/advdrv/svn/' already exists.
# su -c "/usr/bin/svnserve -d -r /advdrv/svn/" subversion
# apt-get install websvn
# svn import projectdoc svn://localhost/projectdoc/ \
    -m "Initial Version"
