RE: Upgrading repos to use xdelta
Apologies in advance for the HTML formatted email - I hate web based emailers...
Anyway, I don't know about xdelta specifically, but the commands you describe are exactly what I used to upgrade a number of repositories from 1.0 FSDB to 1.1 FSFS, and it worked like a charm. I would imagine (but haven't tried it myself) that this approach would also work for upgrading from a 1.0 or 1.1 repository to a 1.2 xdelta repository.
Obvious caveat: make sure that you've shut off all access to your repository (ie. shut down svnserve / Apache etc.) before doing this.

Subject: Upgrading repos to use xdelta
I've just upgraded my server to 1.2.0 and I was wanting to dump/load to
take advantage of the xdelta features. Is the following a recommended
way of doing this?
>svnadmin create temp
>svnadmin dump repos | svnadmin load temp
>mv repos repos.backup
>mv temp repos
Or is there a more robust or safe method to upgrade a repository?
