Things are now back as they were (no website sources in SVN)? I can’t find them in there anyway
Why did you try to merge the two SVN repositories in this way? I see the benefit of having both source trees (+history) in the same repo, but I fail to see the need for a merge)
Replaying all (relevant) commits from one repository into the other is a lot less complex. You can export all commits related to the website from its original repository, and import those commits (effectively replay them) in our IgniteRealtime repo. You can even keep the original commit dates this way. The only thing that will be different, is the commit revision numbers for the website commits - but as we didn’t have access to those in the first place, that shouldn’t be a big problem.
The Migrating Repository Data Elsewere section of the SVN Redbook provides good guidelines on how to do this. I did this a couple of months back without running into any major issues
