RE: Subversion 1.4.6 -> 1.5.2 migration - sanity check please

We've installed subversion 1.5 server on top of 1.4.6 without any
problems (while keeping repositories at 1.4 version).

There's no reason to do such heavy lifting with migration. It all works
out transparently.


P.S. Backups never hurt anyone in any case scenario ;-)

We are planning to upgrade our svn server from 1.4.6 to 1.5.2. We are
checking what is necessary to be done and would be grateful for comments
on our plan.


We have multiple repositories (one for each of our projects) in FSFS


The plan is:


1) Install svn 1.5.2 onto new server hardware, running under Centos 5.0


2) Notify users and disable access to 1.4.6 server


3) Backup each repository using 'svnadmin dump' (or could use tar - I)
and restore onto the new server


4) Run both svnadmin upgrade and svn-populate-node-origins-index on each


5) Map existing http: url to point to new server


6) Notify users that new server is up and running.


Users will remain at 1.4.6 client for now. I see no reason for them to
commit modified files prior to the upgrade.


Some file locks may be active, do we need to look after those in some
special way?


Anything else we've forgotten?


Best regards
