Switch Repositories (SVN)

In order to take a look at WordPress 2.5 before it was released, I used subversion to check out the latest code available using the instructions given on the WordPress site. Once WordPress 2.5 was released, I wanted to keep my sites using 2.5 and not the bleeding edge releases (2.6) so I needed to easily switch repositories from http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/trunk/ to http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/branches/2.5/.
I had never had to switch repositories, so it took some reading to figure it out. For future reference, the following command works when used in the directory you have the checked out files in: “svn switch http://newrepos.com .” For my example, I ran the command: “svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/branches/2.5/ .”
