Are you talking about the setuuid command?

$ svnadmin help setuuid
setuuid: usage: svnadmin setuuid REPOS_PATH [NEW_UUID]

Reset the repository UUID for the repository located at REPOS_PATH.  If
NEW_UUID is provided, use that as the new repository UUID; otherwise,
generate a brand new UUID for the repository.

Script it however you choose.
