Sounds good. I'll announce that the repo will be down for maintenance

Just FYI, during a dry run this morning I hit an obvious snag: The
subversion packages on svn.zope.org are so ancient that they cannot
create FSFS backends. What I was able to test so far is dumping: It
takes just 10 minutes and creates a file 1.1GB in size, so that's good.
I had a look at the packages on the box and luckily the (rather
obscure) source they are from does supply newer ones:
From eyeballing the RPM requirements and then doing a dry-run the
packages that will need updating are...
- swig (1.3.19-1.1 to 1.3.19-3)
- subversion (1.0.6-1 to 1.2.3-1)
- subversion-tools (1.0.6-1 to 1.2.3-1)
- subversion-python (1.0.6-1 to 1.2.3-1)
This additional packages needs to be installed for svn-tools:
- subversion-perl (1.2.3-1)
Since I cannot do any test right now for loading the dumpfile into a
FSFS-based repository I suggest doing this package upgrade beforehand.
It only takes a few minutes. I cannot make any guarantees that nothing
will break, however. The only major upgrade to a running SVN setup that
I have done was 1.1 to 1.2.1 and that was perfectly fine.
How should I proceed?
Go for it. But please, just to be safe, let's wait until the next
round of betas is out. Hopefully, this will happen in the next couple
