12 <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#id283719> ] 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 <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.ref>
for more information and an example.

        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 ... :)

                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 ...
