Re: Creating a new SVN Projects from Directories in Another SVN Project

Why not simply do a "svn mv" to move this subdirectory to the
directory where projects are stored. For example:


$ svn mkdir http://system/svn/projects/new-project/trunk
$ svn mv http://system/svn/projects/big_project/trunk/sub-directory-that's-becoming-a-project
svn mv http://system/svn/projects/new-project/trunk

Something like that. You get the idea. Then, you can create an
svn:external to where this sub-directory use to live.

This way, you keep the entire history.
