Hi all,

Someone on IRC (beerfrick, come on down!) just showed me a *much* easier

$ svnadmin dump /path/to/repos > dumpfile
$ mv /path/to/repos /path/to/repos_saved_just_in_case
$ svnadmin create /path/to/repos
$ svn mkdir -m "create directory structure" file:///path/to/repos/trunk
file:///path/to/repos/branches file:///path/to/repos/tags
$ svnadmin load /path/to/repos --parent-dir=trunk <dumpfile

The keen-eyed will have noticed that my svnadmin load command line in
the first mail was completely wrong. In my defense, I have loaded a
repository from a dumpfile twice ever, and both times I had to run with
-h first :)
