Yes, especially if you use BDB for the repository. It is very important
to perform a "svn dump" with the old BDB version. If your database is
corrupted you should try to fix it on the old system before doing an

The output from "svn dump" can be loaded afterwards by any kind of
database backend. So you can perform a "svn load" also on a FSFS based
repository. Only "svn sync" (on Subversion 1.4 and above) assumes that
the same repository type is used on all mirrors.
