Matt,

You can do this as long as it's on the same machine. The only issue is how ppl have been accessing the repo.

If via Apache, shut it down, move the repo, change the config file, then restart apache. Same procedure via svnserve.

Subject: Can I copy a repo with a simple 'cp -r'?

I want to copy (and not move) an existing repo to another directory on a
Linux system so I can execute some test procedures on this "test" copy
without disturbing the original, production one.

Can I do this with a simple 'cp -r'? Does it depend if any other
transactions are currently executing at the time of the recursive
copy...and/or anything else? Or do I need to execute a dump/load procedure?

This assumes that I'm using a consistent Subversion software (client and
server) revision for all procedures.
