Using svnsync to migrate an installation from Windows to Linux

Hi,

 

At some point in the next month we will be migrating our Subversion installation from a woefully underpowered Windows 2000 box to a much beefier Linux server. I have read the manuals and it looks like svnadmin dump/load is the recommended and well-trodden path to achieve this. I'd like to do a dummy run a week beforehand to get the Linux configuration right and make sure there aren't any surprises when we do it for real. What I was wondering is whether anyone has used svnsync to effect a migration? The superficial and naïve attraction of doing it this way is that after the dry run, my new server is almost ready to go. When I do the migration for real, all I need to do is lock all users bar myself out of the old server, sync across the last week's worth of changes, and make the new server available on the net. Is there any merit in this approach? Any downside?

 

Tony.
