-s- stuck with schema upgrade

Hi, maybe someone remembers me from years ago, I worked some
on the manual.

I am hoping someone can help me with a Subversion database problem.

I'm resuming development on a 40,000 line Subversioned project that
I haven't worked on in 2.5 years. Apparently:

  (a) the last version used with this project was Subversion 0.19, and

  (b) my machine was upgraded to use Subversion 1.1.4.

I gather that I need to do a dump/load cycle to get from database schema
version 1 to 2, and another to get from version 2 to 3. Where can I
get (Cygwin) Windows executables of the svnadmin command for this?
I didn't see anything in the Windows download area here:

I'm not on the Subversion mail lists, so please email directly.


P.S. I didn't see an old svnadmin executable on my machine. Maybe the
installation process for subversion could save the old svnadmin.

P.P.S. It sure would be nicer if 'svnadmin dump' could deal with
schema formats for all previous versions. Maybe this is painful to

P.P.S. The error messages about repositories being out of date and/or
the SVN FAQ could be changed to include version numbers of the svnadmin
command that can be used for the various database schema.

P.P.P.S. I hoped that with the difference in attitude between CVS and
Subversion that this kind of thing would not happen with Subversion.
