Keeping checkouts afer filtering the repository?
Suppose I use svnadmin dump, svndumpfilter, svnadmin create and svnadmin
load to convert a repository from bsddb to fsfs and exclude some files.
Suppose I then use mv to move the old repository out of the way and to move
the new one into its place. Can I then continue to use existing working
directories, or should I make a fresh checkout?
The reason for this rigamarole is
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2430 My subversion
repository got damaged somehow, but I have managed to extract a
(incomplete) dump. I have a number of uncommited changes in my working
directory, and there is also a number of important unversioned files
(gpg keys etc.) that would be a pain to move manually to a new checkout.
Can I just switch the repository?
Hoping the problem magically goes away by ignoring it is the "microsoft
approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
