Adding one SVN repository to another

We already have 1 project SVN hosted by Atlassian. We have another project, currently hosted by another online SVN provider, and we want to move it over to Atlassian as a new project (i.e. so we can control access separately for the 2 projects). Is this possible?

Merging the two repos locally. Does that just mean using "svnadmin load"?

Adding one SVN repository to another

If you do not need the previous repo's history (ie your reference about "as a new project"), it should be as simple as create a new top level directory in atlassian repo and locally. Then copy over your tree structure from the older repo. Then do an add, commit sequence just like if you were adding new files.

Yes this is possible Justin. In order to do this I suggest the following.

  • First generate a local mirror of your Atlassian hosted SVN repo using this procedure
  • Create a dump of your other SVN repo
  • Merge the two repo's locally
  • Generate full dump of the merged SVN repo
  • Import this dump using the OnDemand svn import tool

Hope this helps.
