Re: SVN Dump & Lo

Thanks Andy. I was only doing it that way for 2 reasons:

1. I only need 1 project which is fairly new from the old repo, whereas the
old repo is few years old and has about 6 other projects which we have no
use for.

2. Disk space, the old repo is about 4.5 GB and a dump file is even bigger.

But I like your advice, so I will do a dump of the whole thing, you never
know when or what I will need out of it later.

Thanks again

Yes, you probably could, but why skip over making an actual dumpfile
(and then a filtered one) which you could use multiple times for
backup, testing, making sure everything is the way you expect, etc.?
