Ok, so I have these two repositories and I want to move a project from one repo to the other without losing the history. I tried using svn relocate and I got a weird message and it wouldn't let me relocate. Is there a way to do what I want?

I am using toroise svn btw

Comment by Davious: Daniel, This case is a little more nuanced. This is going to a subdirectory in an existing repository. – Ivo Flipse Oct 27 '10 at 19:19

You must dump the repository, then filter the dump and reimport it into the new repository. Then you can delete the project from its original repo.

I don't think so. Depending on what exactly you want to accomplish, externals might be useful.
