Here's how to import an SVN repository.

Make sure that SVN is already enabled for the project.

You need to ask a SVN dump to the project admin as explained at 

Once the user has provided it, login at Savannah.
Since the process can be long, it's recommended to start it in a screen::

 vserver vcs-noshell enter
 cd /root
 wget http://url/to/myproject.dump.bz2
 bzcat myproject.dump.bz2 | svadmin load /srv/svn/myproject/
 rm myproject.dump.bz2

Sometimes a user may provided a tar of his local svn repository. In this case, 
please ask a proper svn dump (produced by `svnadmin dump`). Using a direct tar 
is not recommended because we may not be using the same versions of SVN, and 
sometimes the format changes with the new versions of SVN.
