If you're using the standard trunk/tags/branches per project layout:


do this:

svn mv project/trunk project/branches/oldtrunk
svn mv project/branches/newtrunk project/trunk

It'll probably produce nicer history if you are able to do this on a
working copy of "project" because then you can commit both changes in
one commit and won't have a revision where the trunk is missing. If
you've got too many tags and branches on project for a full checkout
out of project to be feasable, have a look at the --depth option non
checkout and update.
