Hi everyone,

I recently posted about a problem I was having with SVN to the TSVN mailing
list. I'm forwarding that conversation to this mailing list at the request
of Stefan. He said I should probably check with you guys to see why this was
a problem.

Thanks for everyone's time.

I was previously hosting a repository named "svn" on a Windows server using
OpenCollab's installer, which sets up an svnserve service for you. My
repository used to be accessed via svn://myserver/svn

I now switched to VisualSVN Server 1.5.1 (The previous was using 1.5) and
copied the repository over to the new directory for repositories. My repo
also renamed from 'svn' to 'vfxrepo' . So now, the URL is:

When I try to do a relocate, it says "relocate can only change the
repository part of an url". I'm not sure why. Can someone explain this?

The comment in the Subversion code mentions:
"We can't relocate beyond the repository root, but the user is allowed
 to specify a redundant part of the fs path in from and to, but only
 if this part is identical in both strings."

Not sure why this is, but you might want to report this on the Subversion
mailing list.
