Archiving older revisions

From: Tehmul Ghyara <tehmul_g_at_yahoo.com>

Our setup has 14 repositories, some of which are growing too large. In
some of these repositories, the older revisions (> 1 year) are never
going to be used again ever.

What I tried was:
- dump older revisions into one dump file
- dump younger revisions into a second dump file
- make a new repository
- generated a dummy dump file with empty revisions
- load the new repo with the dummy dump file
- load the new repo with the second dump file
- move the old repo elsewhere
- rename the new repo to the old repo name

The problem with this is the time the repo spends offline. Is there any
way I can do this w/o taking the repo offline, like playing with the
db/revs/ directory or is it too dangerous?

Are there any plan to modify svnadmin to permit operations like these?

Ciao and regards
