Hmm, prose polishing. May I play?

<suggestion>
This release makes an incompatible change to the format of
Subversion repositories. Repositories created with versions of
Subversion earlier than 0.34 will not work with version 0.34
or any later version.

To upgrade, follow this procedure:
  1 Use your existing, pre-0.34 version of "svnadmin" to dump
    your existing repositories.
  2 Upgrade to version 0.34 of Subversion.
  3 Use "svnadmin load" to create a new repository from each
    dump file.
  4 If you had made any changes to the configuration of
    your repositories (such as adding hooks), you will need
    to copy those across to the new ones.
  5 Move the new repositories into place, and the old ones
    out of the way.
