What is the best way to archive a repository

I have several old repositories I need to archive and take offline.
What is the best way to do this? I have done it two different ways

Method 1 : make a hotcopy to a temp location, tar up and gzip that
hotcopy, remove original.

Method 2 : copy conf and hooks dir to a temp location, make a dumpfile
of repository, tar up conf, hooks and dump file, gzip the tar file and
remove original

Is there any reason 1 is worse than 2? My thought is that at some
point in the future (say n years from now), a new version of svn would
be more likely to read the dumpfile than a very old version of the
repository? Is this not a concern?

Any thoughts appreciated.
