How to change the location to retrieve the "Distro".

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Tortoise here is how to tell it to retrieve the files from a new location:
This is for Windows.
1. Right click on the folder where you have assigned Tortoise to download the repository.
2. Select Tortoise SVN from the context menu that pop-up.
3. Select Relocate in the sub-menu.
4. Enter the new address in the text box and click the OK button.

That's it. You may have to do an SVN Update afterwards but now Tortoise will download the files from the new repository location.

I wasn't aware of how to do this until I did a little trial and error testing with the options.

For those using Linux, please feel free to reply here with instructions if they are different.
