Need to eliminate toplevel directory, but keep contents.

My repository has a single master directory called
"svnrepo", and all my client directores are under
that. For example:


I am changing the server to use Apache/WebDAV, which
seems to require a name for the repository. When I
access my current repository via Apache, I have to use
a URL like this:


I need to remove "svnrepo", and move it's contents up
a level in the hiearchy, so client1 would be accessed
like this:

   http://data1.acme.com/acmerepos/svnrepo (empty

If I move the repos directories up a level, will the
programmers be able to find them in the repo? For
example should I do this:

   svn move svn://data1.acme.com/svnrepo/client1/* ..
-m "moving svnrepos contents to highest level in repo"

Then the programmers would do an update, and the
working copies would still work? For example:

If c:\client1 was checked out from
svn://data1.acme.com/svnrepo/client1, then:


would be moved to:




would now be kept in synch with:
