Sounds good, I might change the wording on that warning slightly, just
to make things clearer:

This release makes an incompatible change to the Subversion database.
Repositories created with versions of Subversion prior to 0.34 will not
work with Subversion 0.34. To upgrade, first use 'svnadmin dump' with
your existing Subversion binaries. Then upgrade your binaries to 0.34,
and use 'svnadmin load' to create a new repository from your dumpfile.
Don't forget to copy any custom configuration/hooks from the old to the
new repository.

Wordy stuff like "said repositories" is less clear for non-native
English speakers. I tend to write stuff, then attempt to remove 2 words
from any sentence over 10 words long. It's a useful exercise.

Cheers,
Mike.
