...but at the moment Anton's got his repos on his P: drive, which is a
remote drive, and it works for commits. He can't do a dump of the repos
using a Linux binary on the Linux machine (BDB binary incompatibility)
so what's the correct procedure? Copy the repository to his Windows box
to perform the dump, then do a load to a local-only location (either
actually on Windows with a Windows Subversion server, or on Linux with a
Linux server) ?

I'm suprised things are even working for commits, though.
