Subject Re: Migrate svn, version 1.6.11 (r934486) to svn verion 1.9.3

Hi Brandon,

you can load older dumps into newer versions. So there should be no 
reason to upgrade prior to the migration.

The only thing I'd consider is to upgrade the server to 1.6.23, since 
1.6.11 is rather outdated on the 1.6 branch and therefore there might be 
bugs in the dump logic which would have been fixed in a later 1.6 build 
(I'm not particularly aware of any specific issue here --- just 
suggesting a general I normally follow myself).

Obviously if there is no easy way to upgrade SVN to 1.6.23 on CentOS 
5.8, I'd also skip that. Worst case, you will still have the original 
repository backed-up so you can always replay the migration procedure.
