Probably the simplest way is to do something like this:

- Create a brand-new SVN repository using vss2svn.
- (I'm not sure about the repository layout created by vss2svn, but you
  may need to tweak it to match the layout you had when you created your
  current SVN repository.)
- Dump your old SVN repository using "svnadmin dump --incremental".
- Load the contents of the dump file into the new repository using
  "svnadmin load".

If you haven't made any changes to the VSS repository since importing
its contents to SVN, it should be as simple as that. The repository
layout-tweaking step will probably be the trickiest part (if it's
necessary at all).
