I found a little bit to read about svnsync here : http://
journal.paul.querna.org/articles/2006/09/14/using-svnsync but it
appears only to sync full repos, and read only?

We need a way to easily move specific files and folders between two
or more repos without actually checking them out and back in. Is that
possible? Or should we just merge all the repos and do it that way.
Thanks!
