Re: moving project to a new repository

You entirely misunderstood the concept of subversion, when you created
the repositories, but..

you should use svndumpfilter to filter the repository dump file. Then
if you like to load the repository properly you may need to run some
sed substitutions on the dump files as well. Then create the new
repository and load the dumpfile in it. If your users have extensively
used move/copy operations then you will need to look for one of the
many scripts that can handle the dump file (svndumpfilter does not
work). Take a look here
