Re: moving the svn root up a directory

If I understand you correctly, the directory svn is a normal directory
and svn/project1 is an svn repository. You want svn to be the
repository. So, assuming you are on *nix:
mv svn svn.old
mv svn.old/project1 svn

and done. It also seems that you want to host multiple projects in
the same repository. That's your choice, I suppose, but I would
recommend against.

As far as keeping the paths of the projects the same, that may take some work.
Before the change that I just did, you had
http://our.server.addr/svn/project1 and now it is
http://our.server.addr/svn. Assuming you have just the one existing
project in the repository now, just create a directory and move
everything into it.

svn mkdir -m 'making project directory' http://our.server.addr/svn/project1
svn co http://our.server.addr/svn
cd svn
svn mv * project1
svn commit -m 'moved project1 into its own dir'

I hope I've understood you correctly.
