Re: Is my repository too large?

Cheers for that. Our repository is now in working order again. Will I
have lost any data or should this be fine? svnadmin dump reported a key
couldn't be found at about rev 3.

I would also like to take this oppurtunity to thank and congratulate the
SubVersion devlopers on the 1.0 release. We migrated from SourceSafe in
November 2002 and it's worked brilliantly ever since (especially
compared to SourceSafe).
