Andy, what do you mean svadmin dump/load route? Is this for the repositories? Sorry for being dense here, I just mainly use the software and not do a lot of maintenance to it.

yes, you can jump straight from 1.4 to 1.7 (though I'd recommend going
the svadmin dump/load route to take advantage of enhancements to
repository storage across your whole history).

There are a number of distributions available, both from
companies/individuals (CollabNet, WANDisco, etc.) and OS
distributions. What is available to you and how the installation
process gets run will depend upon what OS your server is running and
what distribution you select.

Also what about the information I currently have stored in the repositories. According to the release-notes they will be automatically upgraded, if I am understanding correctly.
