Do you use FSFS or Berkeley DB?

Actually, it says that ONLY for Berkeley DB repositories (in the link
you posted):
"But there are still other reasons for dumping and loading, including
re-deploying a Berkeley DB repository on a new OS or CPU architecture,
switching between the Berkeley DB and FSFS backends"...

In
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.reposadmin.planning.html#svn.reposadmin.basics.backends
, FSFS is explicitly listed as "Platform-independent storage".

I think if he's using FSFS, just copying the files should (tm) work fine.
A dump/load-cycle won't hurt, but if he has lots of migration tasks, he
can still do that later on...
