The main thing is to dump your repositories *before* you do your upgrade
to 1.2. Just in case, your BDB version updates in the process. For
example, if your BDB moves from 4.2 to 4.3 then your repositories will be
inaccessible. Since you are on OS X, this probably would not happen
without knowing it, but to be safe I would do this:

svnadmin dump all repositories
upgrade to 1.2
svnadmin create all repositories
svnadmin load all repositories

This will also give you the performance gain you get from the XDelta
algorithm used in 1.2.
