Good for you! They should be working just fine if you used "svnadmin
upgrade". What's not necessarily obvious to a new admin is that it can
be worth doing a dump and reload, in order to take advantage of the
more efficient storage now. This can particularly clean up logs with
end-of-line whackiness, and significantly improve the performance of
large repositories.

The larger the repository, the longer this takes to do the dump and
reload, of course.
