Moving stuff from one place to another...

Before:

svn://serverx/client/projects/main/subproject1 -- existing project I
want to move
svn://serverx/client/projects/main/subproject2 -- existing project I
want to move

Turns out subproject1 and subproject2 apply to all clients. Would like
to move them to an applications place:

svn://serverx/applications/main/project1 -- existing project I don't
want to lose

After:

svn://serverx/client/projects/ -- subproject1 and subproject2 are
gone!

svn://serverx/applications/main/project1
svn://serverx/applications/main/subproject1 -- here it is!
svn://serverx/applications/main/subproject2 -- and here too!

I'd like to retain the complete revision histories of subproject1 and
subproject2.

What is this action called? Am I moving repositories, moving
histories, moving projects? I thought I was moving repositories, but
someone at work said that's not what I want to do.

Do I use svnadmin? It says it should have been installed with
TortoiseSVN but I'm not seeing it. I tried to search for a place to
download it but I'm getting all kinds of stuff about compiling Python
and whatever. Way over my head! I have a feeling I could do a lot of
damage with this. I already have to do everything twice in TortoiseSVN
because I think I need something but end up doing something else.
There's one warning about relocating or switching or something, it
tells me, you really want to do the other thing!

I just want to reorganize some projects. Why is this so difficult? It
would seem to be an elementary operation. I don't think I'm inventing
this.

Thanks for reading.

Regards,

Yimin
