moving the svn root up a directory

We set up an svn repo using FSFS that has repository root like this:


Now we have realized that this was mistake and want to "migrate" the
root of svn "upward", but keep the paths to the projects the same.

So that the desired repository root is https://our.server.addr/svn
with "project1" as a subdirectory of svn. This is, of course so we
can add other projects to the same svn root.

What is the proper way to do this? I am assuming with a dump/load,
but want to make sure that is the right way to do it. And would there
be any implications on the existing working copies? Will they need
to do a "relocate"? Or something else?

Or is there better way of doing this change? Like changing the root
to a different path?

(Of course point me to the proper FAQ or red book chapter, if that's
appropriate; I don't think I've found anything that directly applies
to our situation).
