Re: restructuring repositories with svndumpfilter

An easy solution is to do something akin to 'svn mv dir1/* .; svn rm dir1'.
However, moving between before and after this checkin will be a bit of
a hassle.

This smoother solution may be more difficult than you want to undertake,
but we recently "hand" edited dumpfiles ("hand": mostly via a short sed script)
to make a similar change.

Most of the work can probably be done by changing all lines that look like:
and lines that look like:

However, there will be at least a few checkins that will need further work.
For example, the checkin that added repo/dir1, and any later checkins that
rename or delete this directory.

Hope this is of some help.
