Files moved in livejournal repository

A friend of mine pointed out to me that a recent changeset in the livejournal repository moved several important files from their main directories to a backup/ directory.

This means that any new installs of the LJ code will need to run the following command after doing the initial --init:

cp -a $LJHOME/backup/* $LJHOME

This command will also be needed if you update your LJ code to a version past this changeset. If you don't do this, you won't have things like a homepage or create page.

However, there are also several images which were deleted, so you will also need to do the following:

for img in editinfo hourglass journal pencil scrapbook search userinfo; do svn export http://code.livejournal.org/svn/livejournal/trunk/htdocs/img/$img.gif@14809 $LJHOME/htdocs/img/$img.gif; done
me black and white

please help me!

Hey everyone I know there is a client that people use to do this and I have used it once before.  Can someone please help me I know that this can be done automatically by using a client.  I want to transfer all my old journal entries from my old journal into my new journal.  I have over 500 entries and I have done this before with some client but I don't remember which one it was.  Can someone please help me?  I would greatly appreciate it.
