Upgrade repository to 1.5.2

From: Chai, Baolong (Paul) <BChai_at_chevron.com>

We have a subversion repository (1.4.3) installed on our Linux system
and used by developers (about 15-20)

in our company from different part of the world. We plan to migrate the
repository to the new 1.5.2 version

and I'd like to learn the steps we need to take in order to do this


On the Linux system, there are multiple versions of subversion installed
(1.3.2, 1.4.3, 1.4.5, 1.5.2) and the

default is pointing to 1.4.3 (system admin can change this to 1.5.2). I
know we will need to upgrade all

the client to 1.5.2 (some developers are on Windows and use
TortoiseSVN). Beyond that, what is the

recommended way to upgrade? Do I need to do a full dump of the
repository before anything (e.g., need to

'shutdown' the repository? how?) just in case things go wrong. What
about the user working areas (checked

out codes from 1.4.3 repository and haven't been committed)? Maybe you
already have some document about

this, I'd appreciate it if you can point me to it.


Thanks in advance for your help!
