I would never do a transfer like this without a copy of the dumpfile available, for reference. The pain of having to re-run the dump later, especially if there are any bugs in the "svnadmin load" configuration, normally justifies keeping the dump around until well after the migraiton is completed.
Hi Nico,

I'm keeping the original BDB repositories, with read-only permissions. If I really have the need, I can restart Apache 2 with SVN 1.2.3 and go back to the original repositories. Otherwise, I also have the option of re-running my batch file (modifying it if absolutely required).

On top of that, there are bunches of files on another server that give us at least the latest state of the projects.

The dump files in this case are not really as useful as the data itself.

Regards,

Geoff
