Subject Repository shrinkage on conversion 1.5 -> 1.6?
Date Wed, 28 Jul 2010 09:01:52 GMT

I maintain a 76000 revision Subversion 1.5 repository that add up to a
101GiB FSFS db.

I'm looking to upgrade to 1.6, so did a dump and load cycle. The
resulting dump file was 173GiB (I use --deltas). What surprised me is
that the restored repository came out as 71GB - 30GiB smaller!

Is this unusual? Does it suggest some data has gone missing, or what?
Nothing I saw in the release notes suggest repository efficiencies of
this order - I have _not_ packed the repository.
