Promoting a mirror repository as a source repository

Hello again,

I have a (now theoretical) question :

Suppose I have a repository that is a mirror repository of a remote source
repository, regularly synced using svnsync.

Suppose now that the source repository become broken or deleted for any
reason (server breakdown, fire, etc)
So the only available copy of the repository is now the synced mirror

How could I promote my mirror repository in order to have it becoming the
new source repository on the mirror server or on another server ?

(I think that just using the mirror repository without change is not enough
as it contains somewhere inside it information about the old source
repository, given at the beginning by "svnsync initialize", which would
certainly need to be removed)
