Re: Merge of 2 separate subversion installations.

        They are not the same projects. They are 2 separate installations
that will contain totally different projects. What, I believe, is going
to happen is in our second quarter they are going to purchase a high
capacity server. Which will be used to house a single subversion
installation. The repositories from the 1.2.1 version and the
repositories from the second installation will be combined onto this one
So, you are saying that I can just move the repositories to the new
server? Is there a specific command or do I just move the entire

Are you developing the same project(s)? If you are, there isn't a good
way to maintain or merge duplicate repositories. If you aren't, you
don't really have to ever merge them unless you want to. Merging will
break any revision number references you might have to the old history
(like in trouble tickets, etc.) for the one that is merged. You can
simply move them to the same server as separate repos if you want. If
you use http(s) access you can make separate repositories appear under
the same URL anyway.
