Are there any know issues with regards to moving Repositories from one
platform to another ?

Will the old Repositories maintain their current SVN revision ?

Current platform Sun Solaris 10: SVN 1.6.5
Target platform Red Hat Enterprise 5 SVN 1.6.17 ( Subversion Edge )

Planned steps (Creating a script for the dumps and loads as there as a
few hundred Repositories to move.)

(1) Freeze the repository . Take a dump of the repository.

(2) Verify the file is dumped correctly by making sure that the last
version dumped is the same as the one in the live repository. Also
check the return code of the svnadmin dump command.

(3) Copy the dump file over to the new server. Verify that the file is
copied over correctly.

(4) Load the dump

(5) Verify the load.

(6) Migrate and hook scripts or authorization files over.

(7) Verify the scripts and configuration files work.

(8) If you have a name for the server for accessing it. You might have
to point the name to the new server.

a. use switch ?
b. or relocate ?

(9) Unfreeze the repository.

Questions : Switch vs relocate ?
                   Effects of load into a new Subversion version ?
