Re: repository on USB drive

Thanks Ryan,

Your response has done much to boost my hacking confidence.

Is the FSFS format more-or-less static between releases (forward
compatible)? I have an ageing mac which I can not upgrade (OS X
10.2.8). I think it's stuck at svn 1.1.x. Would it be in my best
interest to create the repository with the oldest svn (1.1) or the
latest (1.3) in a muli-versioned environment?

Thanks again,
