NachrichtHmm. Yes, it does! I assume that is what TortoiseSVN is using. From the manual.

12] You can, however, use svn switch with the --relocate switch if the URL of your server changes and you don't want to abandon an existing working copy. See the svn switch section in Chapter 9, Subversion Complete Reference for more information and an example.

  TortoiseSVN features a "relocate" command that does that. Isn't there something similar in subversion as well ?

    Don't. Check out a fresh copy, and copy all your non-.svn directory files on top of the repository much like you were doing an update of a vendor tarball tag. Then do an "svn status" and "svn diff" to make sure your changes are what you think they are, and work with that.

      I have a checked out working copy but the repository URL has been changed.
      How can I make the working copy aware of the changed repository location?

      It seems this is stored in the "entries" file withing the .svn directory but
      I am reluctant to touch anything there ...
