I am having problems converting one of my SVN repositories to SVN 1.4.
I did a "svnadmin dump", created a new 1.4 repository with "svnadmin
create" and tried to reload the dump with
"svnadmin load mynewrepo < mydump".

Svnadmin then gives me the following error:

<<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 5307
adding path :
... done.
adding path :
... done.
svnadmin: File not found: transaction '5306-1', path
adding path :

First I thougth the repository was corrupted so I tried a "svnadmin
verify" which says everything OK with the repo.

So I looked at the revision 5307 in the old repository with "svnlook
changed -r 5307 myrepo | grep Services"
which gives me the following output:

A published/WEBERV_20070320_Edikte_Kundmachung/ERV/ServicesÜST/
A published/WEBERV_20070320_Edikte_Kundmachung/ERV/ServicesÜST/ERV.xsd
A published/WEBERV_20070320_Edikte_Kundmachung/ERV/Services/

I think I can solve my problem if I can manipulate the dumpfile (which
is 900MB) so that the directory is added before the file.

Is it possible to manipulate a svn-dumpfile by hand?
I don't know the format of svn-dumps.

Is it enough to just cut out the

  Node-path: published/WEBERV_20070320_Edikte_Kundmachung/ERV/Services
  Node-kind: dir
  Node-action: add
  Prop-content-length: 10
  Content-length: 10


and place it before the

  Node-kind: file
  Node-action: add
  Prop-content-length: 10
  Text-content-length: 6179
  Text-content-md5: 4b67d3918d3647d1e280efecfafe476d
  Content-length: 6189

What does Prop-content-length: 10 and Content-length: 10 mean?
Could I use svndumpfilter to do the job?
