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
for more information and an example.

Subject: Re: Change repository information of checked out
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.

Subject: Change repository information of
checked out working copy
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 ...
