My project's repository was recreated at a new URL, so I needed to change its repository location. I managed this by hacking source:trunk/app/helpers/repositories_helper.rb@1518#L72 to remove the !repository.root_url.blank? check, which let me change the URL from the Redmine UI. When I saved the form with the new repository URL, it seems to have imported the new changesets like it should have.

So far I haven't seen any errors from this unsupported method of changing the repository location (which makes me wonder why this isn't supported). YMMV.

It is supported. Go to Project -> Settings -> Repository. Use the Delete icon/button and then add the new repo.
