The svn repository dumpfile format is mostly documented in
/trunk/notes/fs_dumprestore.txt. At least, dumpfile 'version 1' is
documented there.

At the moment, exactly two programs produce dumpfiles, and they don't
share any code/logic to do so. They're independent implementations:

   * 'svnadmin dump' (libsvn_repos/dump.c)

   * cvs2svn.py

Also, note that these programs now produce dumpfile 'version 2'. I
believe the only difference is that format 2 has a repository UUID at
the beginning.

As far as *loading* dumpfiles -- we have a nice generalized parser for
that in libsvn_repos/load.c. Look at the function
svn_repos_parse_dumpstream(). All you need to do is provide your own
table of callbacks. Or if you want to use our fs-committing
callbacks, then just call svn_repos_load_fs().
