RE: Creating trunk later

Moving is equivalent to copy/delete according to the manual so I tried
copying and the copy works OK but the log stays where it is and a new
one with the comment, in my case, "Copied remotely" is created. So it
looks like a move would lose my log. Thanks for your reply though.

It is beginning to seem that the only way to achieve what I want is by a
backdoor dump/manually edit/restore approach as someone else has

I think the problem is that Subversion faithfully tries to reflect all
modifications, as it is meant to do. What I want is to say, "No no, I
screwed up, forget about all that!"

No, you can't move something to within itself.

A temporary renaming should do it:

  svn move https://repository/prog1 https://repository/othername
  svn mkdir https://repository/prog1
  svn move https://repository/othername https://repository/prog1/trunk
