hgsubversion: Do not clone from old svn versions

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

Hint: Do not clone from old svn versions (e.g. 1.3) - doesnt work or buggy. Instead, clone the svn repository to a local svn repository, e.g. by:

- svnadmin dump > mydump in the old svn version, on server

- svnadmin create (local) - in actual svn version

- svnadmin load < mydump (local) - in actual svn version

To do this, you need only svn command line client on your local machine.

This hint should be included into doc, so folks would not fall into this trap.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
