repository uuids

Hi,

I always assumed that the repository uuids must be unique for each
repository. Because of that assumption, the log cache in TSVN relies on
that fact.

But now, due to users reporting problems with our log cache we detected
that in the svn book some examples are so that the repository uuid is
not unique:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.reposadmin.maint.html#svn.reposadmin.maint.filtering
The example to split one repository into several ones uses the following
sequence to load the splitted dump files into new repositories:

svnadmin create calc; svnadmin load calc < calc-dumpfile
svnadmin create calendar; svnadmin load calendar < cal-dumpfile
svnadmin create spreadsheet; svnadmin load spreadsheet < ss-dumpfile

but with that sequence, all three repositories will have the same uuid
as the original repository.

Am I missing something? Or should the sequence better be:

svnadmin create calc; svnadmin load calc --ignore-uuid < calc-dumpfile
svnadmin create calendar; svnadmin load calendar --ignore-uuid <
cal-dumpfile
svnadmin create spreadsheet; svnadmin load spreadsheet --ignore-uuid <
ss-dumpfile

?

Stefan
