Thanks very much for your suggestion..
we are on the path now to migrate the server in the next 1 week. from
1.4.6 to 1.7.1.
the daily svnsync is working fine. I have done some rudimentary ascii
compares and such between checkout from 1.4.6 and 1.7.1.

Just a quick question in this connection ..
      Accessing the new server from the 1.4.6 client any thing to keep
in mind or any one has faced any issues?
      I am hoping the dev Team sees no issues accessing the server
from 1.4.6 clients ?
      Any reports on stability of the new 1.7.1 ..

In general any other suggestions and hints or any other things that
need to be taken care of ?

Regards,
Raj
