Basically, whatever you want is fine. You should upgrade to at least a
newer version of 1.5, for bugfixes and so forth. And maybe you care about
new features of 1.6. I find the performance improvement in 1.6 to be quite

On the server, there's no need to dump/load your repository, if you simply
start using 1.6 server process, it's compatible. That being said - All the
stuff that was written in repo by 1.5 will continue having 1.5 performance,
while new stuff will be written in 1.6 format and faster. If you want
optimal performance, and can afford to extend the downtime, then doing a
dump/load to upgrade your repository might possibly enhance performance.
