Comparing a native application on one operating system to an emulation
layer on another operating system is a pretty poor performance
comparison. For each argument for one platform, you can find an argument
against it. For example, in your case, noone ever had to worry about
enabling large file support on Windows. No Windows user ever had to
worry about RPM installations and dependancy nightmares. They also don't
have to worry about permissions problems. Nor do they worry about ldconfig.

This list isn't about advocating any operating system over any other.
We're here to help the users of this **cross-platform** software.

Mathias, to answer your question, use svnadmin dump on the current
server, and svnadmin load on the new server. It's as easy as that.
