If you just dump the repository and then reload it using 'svnadmin load
--force-uuid' your users don't have to do anything.

In this case subversion clients will only know the difference when they try
to use new features communicating to the server.

If you run some kind of conversion/change/alteration script (e.g. convert
merge information, filter some files, etc.) then all your users have to
checkout again (and you should use --ignore-uuid on svnadmin load to make
sure they must do just that, to reduce the chance on corruptions)
