Re: Moving label

I don't know why there is anything to do with "URL's are saved in the .svn
dircotry". But you can try the following steps:

(1) Commit your changes into the actual version.
(2) Use 'svn merge' on the local copy (pointing to the moving label in the
repository) to bring the changes from actual version to the moving label.
(3) Commit the changes in the local copy (pointing to the moving label in
the repository). Make sure that you clearly state the FROM and TO revision
that you use in step 2 in the comment. This is to avoid double-merging for
next merging.

This is it. The only problem that I can think of is that the files in the
actual version and moving label will have different history. Don't know how
to get around this.
