Hi Subversion Gurus,

Any thoughts/feedback on moving FSFS Repository across OS by
zipping/tarring the repository and unzipping/untarring on the new OS.
Are there any technical reasons why this should not be done as described
by Talden below.

I have done the above from Linux to Windows and did not experience any
issues. Your clarification on this issue is greatly appreciated.

This process assumes there is no activity on the repository during the
move.

Thanks
Lakshman

My understanding was that textual diffs were EOL normalised to be server
native. This would break when copying a repo between platforms wouldn't
it?

In addition I thought I heard mention of an architecture dependency as
well (I'm assuming endian-ness and possibly word-width) but this may
have been only BDB.

If this isn't the case then it makes FSFS even more compelling.
