RE: Repository reorg question

I think it's also possible to avoid the file renames altogether by dumping the repository, and reloading into a fresh repository at a new path (if I've understood correctly; see <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.load.html>). Perhaps someone could advise of whether this is indeed possible, of the required steps, and of whether the revision numbers would be affected.

If you do do this, please ensure that your old repository is safely backed up before you start. It may take a while, and is not as simple (or "safe") to undertake as the "move" solution already described. The result might be "cleaner" however.

Subject: Repository reorg question

When our svn repository was setup, the admin did not use the recommended structure of trunk, tags and branches, but instead he just placed the code in the repository. Now we need to create branches and tags, so I'd like to redo the repository. What is the safest way to go about this?
