I have just inherited a Subversion server that is a mess. I want to migrate to a new server with a saner file system layout. I figured a
svnadmin dump and then
svnadmin load for each repository would be sufficient. However, I have learned the repositories make use of svn externals, and mostly absolute externals. Is it possible to move repositories with externals to a new server?
My current configuration:
svn+ssh://subversion.example.com/var/svn/repoA svn+ssh://subversion.example.com/var/svn/repoB ... svn+ssh://subversion.example.com/var/svn/repoAA
The configuration I want to move to:
svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentA/repoA svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentA/repoB ... svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentB/repoA svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentB/repoB ... svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentC/repoA svn+ssh://vcs.example.com/var/repos/internalDepartmentC/repoB
