RE: Creating trunk later

I know others have recommended moving, renaming then moving, etc.
One other possible solution is:
1. Dump the existing repository:
      svnadmin dump PathToOldRepo > OldRepoDumpfile
2. Create a new repository
      svnadmin create PathToNewRepo
3. Create a "trunk" directory in the new repo
      svn mkdir file:///PathToNewRepo/trunk -m "Creating trunk"
4. Load the old repository into trunk of the new repository
      svnadmin load PathToNewRepo --parent-dir trunk --force-uuid <
If you don't use the --force-uuid, then you won't be able to switch any
working copies to the new repo

Subject: Creating trunk later

Although I have used SV for a while I now know I have been doing things
wrongly and would like to correct it.


I'll bet I am not the only one to have done this or asked this question
but I can't seem to find an answer in the archives.


I created my repository and checked my working copy into


I now realise I should have used https://repository/prog1/trunk then I
could have easily made branches and tags.


I have a history of revisions built up in https://repository/prog1 and
would like to move everything to https://repository/prog1/trunk
including my revision history. I don't seem to be able to do this. The
revision history seems to want to stay in the old location.
