#4259 Validate SVN import url

sf-2 (995)

When import svn repos (using the tool's admin menu), we should validate the input. This error can happen if it is blank. We should also validate that it's a real url. Limit to http(s) and svn (if that works).

    On allura js/4259. To test, confirm that a validation error occurs if you submit the svn repo import form with no url or a url that doesn't start with http/https/svn
