It's a bit more complicated in practice. Any version of Subversion can
read/write all the older repository formats and it is the repository
format that needs to be compatible. So for the hotcopy to be useable on
the mirror what matters is whether the version of Subversion on the
mirror is compatible with the repository format on the master.
