Dealing with binaries and migrating a 36G repository

I have been trying to migrate a hosted repository that is 36G. This is
difficult because we have offshore teams, so the repository is almost
always active. Before I got here, it seems that someone had the build
process check in each binary after it was built.... Urgh!

I'm looking for tips on migrating this repository?

I have a list of the revisions that are greater then 10M

I have looked for svndump filters to exclude certain revisions, and
considered other migration paths, but exporting 36G then scp'ing it off to
another host takes a long time and I think it would be best if I could
export everything except the binaries.. Is there a way to do this with

Current server is running:

[dagger]$ svn --version
svn, version 1.5.1 (r32289)

Target servers is running 1.7

Both servers are Linux.
