I went with the option of moving to Subversion Edge to get to svn 1.7.x. I am still running 1.6 svnserve and 1.7 Edge against the same repos until everything is relocated. Once I take the 1.6 server down I didn't see anything in the Edge UI to run svnadmin upgrade. Do I just do this from the command line? Is it needed? Or should I dump load? My last dump load was when moving from 1.5.x to 1.6 but it took a LONG time.
