This push/pull wording is indead confusing, since it's actually
svnsync that pulls information from the source server and pushes
it onto the destination server.

To clarify:
You can use any subversion server as the destination (since svnsync
does simple commits and revprop changes on the destination server),
but the source server needs to be >= 1.4 since svnsync uses special
APIs to retrieve the information.

Kind regards

Sven
