RE: moving project to a new repository

You should teach your users to check out just the project they are
working on rather than the entire repository. Also, with TSVN you can
open the repo browser and use show log in just the project, folder, file
you want to look at very easily.


Also, you can refactor your repository without moving from one repo to
another. Just use svn mv as needed. Or, if you are using TSVN it is even
easier to do this in the repo browser.

I totally agree with you. The way the repository was created here (a
very long time before I came to work here) is wrong.

So I am trying to fix some old problems.



All my users are using tortoise SVN so to run command line (which is not
even installed) for users here, is something that we are not going to
do. I think that it will be the best to move the project (which is
already a stand alone project) to a different 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

Aha, but svn dump and load moving the whole repository. I want a single
project from the repository, and to have much less revisions.


The thing is that currently in our SVN repository there are many
projects and 28000+ revisions.


So when a user wants to see a log, it takes him about 10secs to open the
log, and about 20Min to create a Tree view.

So, I thought that if I copy the projects to separated repositories, I
will spend less time with going over revisions from other projects.

Hi All,


I have this project that I want to move from one repository to another.

Could it be possible without loosing revision history of this project?
