This is how I quickly pull and insert the subversion path within the emacs shell, as I often need the absolute URL when restoring to a file to previous version for example.

(defun svn-root ()
"get path to svn repository"
(interactive)
(insert (shell-command-to-string "svn info | awk -F ':' '/URL/' | cut -c 6- | tr -d '\n'")))
