Moving a repo into another?

Hi all,

I have a repository which was, at inception, independant of other
projects. However, now, I need to create a new repository for 2 new
projects. The existing project, however, is now related to these 2
new projects. How can I create the new repository and migrate the
old one into the new one and retain the history?

Here's an example of what I have now:


projectA, project1, and project2 are all unrelated. I need to create
projectB and projectC, both of which are related to projectA. I'd
like to create:


which will have 3 subdirs, project[ABC] under it, and migrate the
existing projectA to projectALPHA/projectA.

Does that make sense?

Do I want to:

        svnadmin create /usr/local/svn/projectALPHA
        svn mkdir /usr/local/svn/projectA
        svn mkdir /usr/local/svn/projectB
        svn mkdir /usr/local/svn/projectC
        svnadmin dump /usr/local/svn/projectA | \
                svnadmin load /usr/local/svn/projectALPHA/projectA


Or is there some other/better way to do this?
