I'd like to move some subversion repositories located in /usr/local/svn to /u1/svn_spill

Here's my plan (for each repo i want to move):

svnadmin hotcopy /usr/local/svn/repo1 /u1/svn_spill/repo1
rm -R /usr/local/svn/repo1
ln -s /u1/svn_spill/repo1 /usr/local/svn/repo1

If i did an ls -lta in /usr/local/svn i would then see

lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  svn      22 Mar  9 20:32 repo1@ -> /u1/svn_spill/repo1



Will this work?

my solution worked, booyah!


note:
you must chown -R svn:svn /path/to/repo and chmod -R as well to set permissions so users can write
