You pretty much just need the new server binaries. You do not need to do
anything to your repository. This might be a good opportunity to migrate
to Subversion Edge, since that gives you a web UI to manage the server and
get future updates automatically:


 Since you are using 1.5, you could choose to create a new repository and
dump/load your existing repository. This would let you use the new
rep-sharing feature which can save some disk space in the repository. It
is nothing you need to do right away though. I would recommend upgrading
just the server version and then you can always upgrade repositories later
if you think there is a compelling reason to do so.
