Re: File size limit exceeded when loading a dump file

I'm not sure if you can specify a path within the repository when using svnadmin dump, but you can always pipe it through svndumpfilter.

RE: Why not dump subdirectories of your repository so that you get smaller
dump files?

That's a great idea.  I didn't think of it because the docs seem to indicate that the svnadmin dump command worked at the repository level rather than being able to specify a sub-folder to export.

Would the commands for it be something like:
svnadmin dump /svn/repo1/project1/trunk > project1.dump
svnadmin dump /svn/repo1/project1/tags/r1.0.0 > project1-1.0.0.dump

And then to reload:
svnadmin load /svn/repo1/project1/trunk < project1.dump
svnadmin load /svn/repo1/project1/tags/r1.0.0 < project1-1.0.0.dump

Is that correct?

Thanks,
Shawn

I installed via "apt-get install Subversion" from the official Ubuntu repositories.

I'll look into a compile against APR 1.2 rather than using the pre-built packages.

Thanks,
Shawn.

The Subversion team does not distribute any compiled binaries. So,  
what did you compile it against? Or: what unofficial Subversion  
binary did you install? As far as I know, all the unofficial binaries  
available at the download page use APR 0.9. Also, Subversion still  
ships with APR 0.9. If you want APR 1.2, you probably need to build  
it yourself.

Why not dump subdirectories of your repository so that you get smaller
dump files?
