This is a server issue so you need to consult the subversion
documentation and/or ask on the subversion users mailing list. It is
certainly possible to combine 2 repositories, but I am not sure how
easy it would be to interleave the histories so the resultant
revisions are in true commit date order, as opposed to all revisions
from repo 1 followed by all revisions from repo 2.

If you change the repository by combining histories you would have to
checkout a fresh working copy.
