Have you tried creating a new repository with the format you want and then
use svnsync to sync the data to it? I seem to recall that svnsync will fix
the line endings as it syncs the log entries. I could be wrong though
because I see that svnsync has a --source-prop-encoding option that we
added for fixing non UTF8 log messages. So it is possible I am confusing
with that option. I would try it though since it is a a simple method to
use.
