Migrating to new repository layout

From: <Remi_Pelletier_at_dom.com>

What is the process of migrating an existing repository to a new layout.

From a flat structure: (doh!)


To a more useful structure such as:



My initial repository was not created with the proper layout, i.e. no
trunk, branches or tags directories. When I created the new directories
for trunk, branches and tags (after the fact) and try 'svn cp' to copy from
the root to the trunk I get the message cannot copy path into its own
child. This message makes sense, however attempts to do a 'svn mv' result
in the same message.

My guess is that I have to dump and reload to accomplish this, however I am
not sure about the specifics of the commands or examples of the commands
that should be used to do this correctly.

If I had the example commands that showed how I could migrate changes
(rev#s 0 to 103) to /svn/repos/root/projectA/trunk and the remaining
revisions into /svn/repos/root/projectA/branches/subsetA I'd be able to
sleep better knowing that I have the ability to do tags and have branches.

Thanks in advance
