You've got it backwards. The need to dump and load is so rare, that we
only announce when it's required! We almost never change the database
schema. And as Karl said, that's not going to happen again until svn
2.0.

The book says:

"The most common reason to dump and load a Subversion repository is due
to changes in Subversion itself. As Subversion matures, there are times
when certain changes made to the back-end database schema cause
Subversion to be incompatible with previous versions of the repository.
The recommended course of action when you are upgrading across one of
those compatibility boundaries is a relatively simple process."

So from this, you inferred that *every* new release of Subversion
involved a database schema change? If so, how can we change the wording
to make it clear that this is not the norm?
