Please don't You'll *really* hurt yourself having to support that.
CentOS 7 has 1.7.x as its default Subversion. If you need Subversion 1.9, it's in the "SCLO"
repository, such as the copy at

That published version is 1.9.3, but it actually has some upstream support at RedHat. I've
done personal builds, and used to publish to RPMforge, and it's not worth the work.

Yes, you can. Definitely look into setting up an "svnmirror", to establish a new Subversion
on your CentOS 7.x box slaved to the old one, and look at "svnadmin hotcopy" on the old server
to get a copy of hte configs with your local tuning. We've discussed this before for people
planning upgrades, and even discussed it in the lst week.

When you're happy with the new mirror, *write lock* the old one, and help your users set their
repositories to point to the new server.
It's usually easier and safer if they actually check out new working copies, but not everyone
is willing to do that.
