Re: Change repository information of checked out working copy
The problem with this is that the working copy is quite large and contains a
lot of additional files that are not
subversion managed (IDE project management files and others). So the
likelihood of making a mistake here is quite big.
So there is no built-in recommended method to do this?
I guess I will give hacking the entries file a try ... :)
