i understand i can upgrade from portupgrade.  Do i need to remove the svn appliaction before i do port upgrade?

Could any harm come to my FSFS repositories if i upgrade the svn application to the latest version?

1) update source - csup
2) read release notes mentioning SVN - you may need to dump its storage into text and import back
3) when sure about what to do -backup and  portupgrade -fRr boom

from what i'm reading... when upgrading between major versions it says to always do a full dump of every repository... upgrade, then load the dumps back in to the new version.

The book i read said you can upgrade repos to new versions, but you cannot revert the repo back if something goes wrong (to the old version).  The full repo dumps would ensure i can revert back if any problems occur.

Would you agree with that?

You have to create a dump before trying to upgrade.
