RE: Can I copy a repo with a simple 'cp -r'?

Paul,

It partially has to do with what fs the repo is created with, either bdb or fsfs. There may be issues when dealing with a different machine's svn install. Most of the time, it's just easier to do a dump and load process.

I would define same machine as the exact same computer, operating system and subversion install.

Why does it matter what machine it's on? (And if it does, what
defines "same machine"?)
