Subversion does not support moving between working copies and URLs. In addition, you can only move files within a single repository—Subversion does not support cross-repository moving. Subversion supports the following types of moves within a single repository:
- WC → WC
Move and schedule a file or directory for addition (with history).
- URL → URL
Complete server-side rename.
Move a file in your working copy:
$ svn move foo.c bar.c A bar.c D foo.c
Move several files in your working copy into a subdirectory:
$ svn move baz.c bat.c qux.c src A src/baz.c D baz.c A src/bat.c D bat.c A src/qux.c D qux.c
Move a file in the repository (this is an immediate commit, so it requires a commit message):
$ svn move -m "Move a file" http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/foo.c \ http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/bar.c Committed revision 27.
