That's harder. I think you can do it with svk: make a local copy of
the repository, and then load the changes from that, but that isn't
really the way svk is designed to be used, so maybe not.

Or you could write a horrible script to update from one repos, rsync to
a working copy checked out from the other, and commit: but I wouldn't
try that.

I think you'll need help from your department's admin. And you should
expect revision numbers to change, so log messages will refer to the
wrong revs.

Why not just set up a repository in your own account? There isn't a lot
of advantage to having a lot of different projects in one repository.
The only ones I can think of is that it makes it easy to copy code from
one to another, and backup is a bit simpler.
