Migrating to a new repository

I am preparing to migrate the contents of an existing repo to a new, empty one. I read the section in the SVN book regarding filtering repository history (w/svndumpfilter), but I don't think it does what I need.

There are a large number of (easily grouped) files, of various types, that I want *copied to*, but no longer *versioned in*, the new repository. The svn:ignore property ultimately does what I want, but how I can go about moving the contents from one repo to another, making some files non-versioned in the process? Is there a method to do this to the existing repo somehow prior to moving the files? If I set the svn:ignore property to the files I no longer want versioned in the existing repo will they still copy over to the new repo (unversioned)?

Ultimately, I want to keep the rev history from the existing repo, or I'd just export the files and start over.


(I am running Subversion 1.4.6 on Windows 2003 Server)
