Maybe that one...

BTW, definitely think of whether the current directory layout of your repository is
ok (or if the actual current repository root should be moved into a sub
directory of the new one, e.g. think of the usual svn trunk/branches/tags stdlayout
and check whether there's a suitable way to do such a directory hierarchy change
right *during* the migration step (i.e., without complicating your history due to
subsequent complicated directory moving actions).
Don't ask me why I'm mentioning this here.......

BTW, congrats for tackling the switch to a more suitable/widely usable/modern
