You may be in luck. I don't think that the repository dump format has
changed since revision 2634, and 0.14.0 is 2667! The filesystem
schema itself changed in 0.14.2, so the dump/load is required. But
you shouldn't have to bother with intermediate dump/load stages. Just
dump your repository with your current 'svnadmin dump', build a new
subversion, then use the new svnadmin to create and load your new
repos. After testing that everything looks alright, you can discard
the old repos. Don't forget to copy over any hook scripts or custom
DB_CONFIG edits to the new repos, too.

See the INSTALL file (in the new version of Subversion that you plan
to build of course).

We're gonna try to get 0.16 out the door next Tuesday.
