Yes...you are mis-reading the question. I have a FULL DUMP and want to only load a BRANCH. Seth

How do you restore (load) a BRANCH from an Subversion Dump onto a new repository on a new server?

Given that googling showed absolutely no hits I think I know the answer to this question (which is "no you can't do that") but just to be sure...

I used svn dump to backup a subversion repository. Now I want to do an svn load on a different server with a new install of subversion of that backup. But the catch is...I only want to restore a specific branch not the whole repository.

Is that possible with svn load or some other tool?

I already found this SO question...

How do i dump a specific subversion path from a berkeley db?

This accomplishes the same goal (and I can definitely do that if all else fails but I am trying to save some time). With that post you dump only what you need and then do a straight up Load. I want to only load what I need from a full dump.

EDIT
Thanks for your feedback. But I am still not getting it.

  • I have a dump file located at e:\svnBackups\repoBackup.svn
  • I have all of my new repos at e:\Repositories
  • I want to only restore a single branch of e:\svnBackups\repoBackup.svn.
  • The branch I want to restore is at productionRepo/Projects/Branches/MyCoolBranch in the backup.
  • I want the new repo (on a new server) at e:\Repositories\newRepo

Using this information, what command line command do I type to make it happen?
