That's not the problem. Again, I have a repository:


It contains two directories, 'project-a' and 'project-b':


I dump the repository:

$ svnadmin dump http://svn:6666/repository > dumpfile

I separate the projects:

$ cat dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project-a > project-a-dumpfile
$ cat dumpfile | svndumpfilter include project-b > project-b-dumpfile

I create two new repositories:

$ svnadmin create /raid/subversion/project-a
$ svnadmin create /raid/subversion/project-b

I load my dumps:

$ svnadmin load /raid/subversion/project-a < project-a-dumpfile
$ svnadmin load /raid/subversion/project-b < project-b-dumpfile

I end up with:

$ svn co file:///raid/subversion/project-a
$ find project-a

When what I really want is:

$ find project-a

The original 'project-a' and 'project-b' directories from the original
repository are no longer necessary, as the new repositories 'project-a' and
'project-b' take the place of these directories.

I'd do a simple search and replace to change the paths in the
project-a-dumpfile and project-b-dumpfile, but that would leave empty
'Node-path:' entries lying around and probably cause problems (I haven't
actually tried it).

Anyone have any advice?
