        That's correct, though I would add that no one particularly
recommends keeping them around to recover a corrupted repository. The
normal practice is to do dumps (with "svn dump") and then use "svn load" on
them to reconsitute a corrupted repository.

log files as soon as they are no longer necessary.

        It is still relevant to make sure that you are not running the
released version that turned off automatic deltification. I think it was
0.33, but I don't remember now.
