If you are currently running one of the 1.0 releases, just download the
latest binaries and copy them over the old versions. That is it. Of
course stop svnserve before doing this and restart it after.

Do the same on your clients. It is OK to mix 1.0.x releases between
client and server so you can roll this out at your own pace. Of course,
because of the security update, you should try to do so quickly.

You should move all the way to 1.0.4.
