RE: Relocate continued

I was able to try this on an archive of an old directory and the two-phase
process does indeed work.

1. Use "svn switch --relocate" to change only the "leads_to_repository" part
of the URL.
2. Use "svn switch" to change to the new branch path.

Thank you.

The rule is:

URL *to* the repository changes: --relocate Path *within* the repository
changes: plain switch

If both apply, then yes, you need a two phase process.
