Re: move subversion repo from windows to solaris

Also, if you have a really big repo and don't have enough disk space to hold
the dump file and the repo on disk at the same time, pipe is your friend.

Have a look at PuTTY SSH, it has a command line version for scripting that
would allow you to do something like

C:\> svnadmin dump c:\myrepo | ssh user_at_solaris svnadmin load

which would do the dump load without putting the dump file on disk anywhere.

Another thing is that any hooks you have will need to be converted to run on
solaris and dump/load will not copy hooks or auth stuff for you
