1.0 is quite old, so you should do this upgrade carefully.

The best idea would be to "dump" your current repository to a
textfile with "svnadmin dump" using your current v1.0 svnadmin
program. Then "load" that with "svnadmin load" into a new repository
created with svnadmin v1.3. See:


Note that since Subversion 1.1 you have the choice of two different
repository backends: BerkeleyDB ("BDB"), which is what you're using
now, and the newer "FSFS" storage mechanism which became the default
as of Subversion 1.2. I generally recommend FSFS, as it's usually
less problematic than BDB, except that there's a problem with FSFS
and revisions larger than 2GB until the next version of APR comes
out. So if you have such large commits, or expect to have them, you
may want to stick with BDB.
