No need to do it hackish. Lookup svn switch --relocate: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/re27.html
I have several projects that are transferring from one subversion server to another, which means the URL has changed, my question is what might the issues be if I just edit the (dot) svn file and change the URL ? or is it better to just delete it and rerun the checkout from the newer server ?
