You could try this svn_load_dirs.pl:


which will make it much easier to do the second and subsequent imports. This
script will present a list of files that have been added and deleted and allow
you to connect the dots (manage the renames).

Even if you have thousands of files, it's something you only have to do once,
and then you'll have your history.
