If you just want the head revision to be checked into the other
repository, then probably svn export from rep1 and svn import to rep2
should work.

If you want to copy all the history as well, it will be a lot harder. I
imagine you'd do it by some combination of dumping, filtering, and loading.

Another possibility is that you have an svn:externals property in rep2
that refers to rep1, but that sounds different from what you're asking
for: it just gives you a working copy from rep1 within a working copy
from rep2, it doesn't actually copy any content into rep2.
