I recently started syncing our old repositorys, all fsfs and created
with Subversion versions 1.4.x and earlier, to a new server with most
repositories created with Subversion 1.6.x and only standard features
enabled. It's about 7,2 GB vs. 6,2 GB with one of our largest
repositories on the sync target still in an older fsfs format. Seems
it worth to do a complete dump/load cycle and the newer repository
formats also have a feature called rep-sharing, where data is stored
only once for the complete repository.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
