You have to dump the repositories, create new ones and import the dumpfile to

Looks about this way:

cd <repository parent dir>
svnadmin dump <repository> --deltas > dumpfile
mv <repository> <repository>.old
svnadmin create <repository>
svnadmin load <repository> < dumpfile
rm dumpfile

or using a pipe, so you don't have to save the dumpfile to disk

cd <repository parent dir>
mv <repository> <repository>.old
svnadmin create <repository>
svnadmin dump <repository>.old --deltas | svnadmin load <repository>

Here you maybe don't need the '--deltas' option, it only saves space in the
dumpfile. I'm not sure if it's here faster with or without it.
