No, *but*:

If these are going to be BDB repositories, the same version of BDB must be
in use on both your laptop and the server, and they should both have the
same endian-ness (i.e. Don't mix Apple and x86). Additionally, run "svnadmin
recover" before and after the move.

If they will be FSFS repositories, then there are no special concerns.

Max.
