The recommended upgrade path would probably be different than what you
describe. Do an svnadmin dump on your current server, and import on your
new server, with whatever version of Subversion you're running there. If
you cannot take any down time, do the dump & load, then set up svnsync to
catch up and keep the two servers in sync. When you're ready to switch
over, you stop new commits to the existing server, make sure the sync
operations finish, then deactivate the syncing and turn your new server
liver. Maybe a minute of total down time.

I believe so, if you follow the approach I outlined above. Caveat - I don't
run CentOS.
