Technically, I don't think the repository gets renamed.  It's just a
matter of moving a directory in the tree with `svn mv'.

I hope the read-only Git repos will get updated to track the new path
too.  I wish we could use this opportunity to switch to Git entirely.

I'm sure we can also script that.

I'm against this.  Confluence = Proprietary Software.  Plus, many
people I talked to who've used it complained about its UI and wiki
syntax.  And I think it makes more sense to stay on what we already
know and use, instead of spending time migrating the contents to a
different kind of wiki.
