Subversion 1.7.1 Migration

From: PR <rp0013_at_gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 6 Nov 2011 11:45:04 -0800

Thanks to some very great suggestions \ help from the nice folks on
the mailing list, I have migrated our 550 odd repositories from 1.4.6
to 1.7.1

Now I am looking for some more direction...

Here is the scenario

1/ Supporting 800 + developers mostly on rhel unix clients located at
various locations.

2/ we use the central server model and access the central repository
via vpn access.

3/ Currently all the servers (2 in cluster environment with http
access provided by the repository) clients accessing the server using
a single http protocol for access and are on 1.4.6

Now that another server is migrated to 1.7.1 and in a stand by mode
and being synced using svnsync utility with the current master server.

How do i upgrade the enterprise subversion ...

A/ should I upgrade server first to 1.7.1 and leave the clients at
1.4.6 initially and then the clients .. upgraded to 1.7.1 slowly ?

B/ or migrate the clients first to 1.7.1 slowly leaving the server at
1.4.6 and then upgrade server to 1.7.1.

we are not using the merge info functionalities ... as yet ..

As always thanks in advance for your time for reading the email and
your invaluable suggestions.
