From what I've read
if your backend is FSFS you should be able to access your repository
over a mount.

It's often possible to throw out a lot of old debris, by creating a
duplicate of the repository that is much smaller. But for various
reasons, NFS is a bad idea for Subversion repositories:
Look into the "svndumpfilter" tool for doing duplications of a
repositories contents, with careful use of the "exclude" option. But
"old file copies" is usually a misnomer: if the fle exists in *any*
active branch, or is a base file for difference-recorded copies of the
file, you don't gain much by trying to eliminate other copies of the
file because Subversion uses a database, not merely copies of the file.

        Dear All,
        What should I do when the disk that SVN is on is nearly full ?
        I know I can migrate my repositories to a bigger disk. But is it
also possible to :
        1. Move some repositories to NFS partitions
        2. Obliterate old file copies from some repositories ?
