Repository re-organisation / moving files

Dear All,

I now have several Subversion repositiories set up and like the way that
things work and it certainly seems superior to cvs. However, I wonder if
anyone could help me with a question:

One of my first (and largest) repositories was created without adopting
trunk/branches/tags subdirectories in the usual manner, so that
everything is stored in the root directory of the repository. I am aware
that I can reorganise the repository with an svn move. However, while I
could then revert back to an earlier revision it seems that in doing so
the full history (understandably) does not accompany the file.

In an earlier post that I dug up it was suggested - if I read it right!
- that one solution was to dump the repository then recreate it after
"hacking" the dumpfile. Having examined the dump files produced I am a
little unclear about what this means.

If anyone could put me right on this that would be very helpful.

Many thanks,


P.S. Apologies for re-posting, but since I 'replied' to an existing
thread it looks like my client may have posted meta-data from before
and thus it may have been appended to another post!
