Re: How does upgrading client/server affect working copy?

To confirm, the file .svn/format from a working copy checked out of
Subversion 0.33.1 contains "4", and the same file from a different
repository checked out of Subversion 1.0.0 also contains "4"... So the
short answer is "yes, they should Just Work" (the changes are more to do
with repository internals and possibly the data exchanged between
client+server, not the working copy). I saw nothing in CHANGES about
incompatible changes to the working copy (although 0.34 did change the
repository format -- but this isn't a problem for us).

Thanks again,
