Svnsync is the easy option.

If you insist on doing a dump/load, then a) you can time a test run of a dump/load, and b)
"svnadmin dump" allows you to specify revision ranges which means you can do incremental dumps.
 You can dump/load the bulk of the repo now and then during the migration, run another dump/load
to catch any new commits.

The only caveat I can think of is if someone changes revision properties (e.g. the commit
message) between the time of the initial dump and the migration.  But you can track/prevent
those with a hook script.  (And is another reason why svnsync is preferred.)
