Actually, I have two.

One, use standard terminology.  What you call "archive" we'd call a
"repository".  Therefore I'm not sure whether by "repository" you mean
"repository" or "working copy".

In any case, look into the 'svnsync' command for pushing changes from
one repository (in the standard sense of the term :-)) to another, into
'svnrdump load' for a one-off version of that, and into 'svn relocate'
for pointing a working copy to a different repository.

Feel free to clarify your question, then we might be able to provide
more accurate answers.
