RE: svn:external and server migration

Hello Ryan,

        Thank you for your answer but it is still not clear for me how I
can use the svndumptool to do it in an automated way.
        I saw the command Transform-prop and edit, but I'm not sure that
is what you meant. Could you please provide me an example or more detail
on how to do this operation with svndumptool please?

Thank you very much!

Olavo Lira

Upgrade to at least Subversion 1.5 on the client, which supports
relative externals.


Dump your repository, then change the absolute externals you have now
into relative externals using svndumptool.


Then load the modified dump into your new empty repository.

All users should delete their working copies and check out new ones.
