But the repository is huge (~45GB), and loading it using 'svnadmin load' will take me days

I need the entire revision history, because I need to extract historical information from
the repository.
But I could use the revision history from specific projects only, I don't need the entire
repository, which contains all the ASF projects. The problem is I can filter these projects
in the dump file.
