If your repository is FSFS, there's nothing special to do. Just
install the new versions and go.

If your repository is BDB, you'll want to check if the new version of
Subversion comes with a new version of BDB. If it does, you'll need
to perform some special conversion steps. They're described in the
FAQ, or should be described in the included read me as well.

Regardless of repository type, it wouldn't hurt to do an "svnadmin
verify" on the repository before beginning the upgrade, and an
"svnadmin dump" of the entire repository to be safe, in case
something goes wrong.
