RE: svn upgrade

Hi Andy,

I read the documentation.
As you know svnadmin upgrade - only do the minimum to upgrade the
From the svnadmin help upgrade:

As such, the upgrade performs only the minimum amount of work needed to
accomplish this while still maintaining the integrity of the repository.
It does not guarantee the most optimized repository state as a dump and
subsequent load would.

I also read the links - also the link that you have sent me.
We also had a session about this last week, there is this c file:
svn-populate-node-origins-index, I have no idea how to compile and
execute it. I thought that there is an exe file that does the same, but
I couldn't find it.

So I have decided to run dump and then load to the sources - after I
have finished the upgrade (and it was a successful upgrade - so as you
can see, I do read my mails and documents).
The dump went fine, but then the load failed with the following error:
C:\Program Files\VisualSVN Server\bin>svnadmin load --quiet
D:\Repositories\dev < D:\Dump\dev.dump
svnadmin: File already exists: filesystem 'D:/Repositories/dev/db',
transaction '26662-3', path 'LMS'

1) What have I done wrong here?
2) Is the procedure of dump and load would have saved me compiling the
file: svn-populate-node-origins-index?
3) Is there an exe file for the: svn-populate-node-origins-index?

Please, please, please read all the documentation before you keep
using Subversion. I'm pretty sure you've been given the links for it
before, but I don't think you're taking the time to understand what
you're reading.

If you do the dump/load, then running svnadmin upgrade isn't needed.
And it'll do the indexing for you in that process as well. Since
you've already done svnadmin upgrade, the best use of your time (after
re-reading the release notes and manual at least once) is to continue
with populating the index as is explained at
