If you do that you will lose all history of the projects. Have a look
at the subversion book on dump/load cycles to see how to dump a
repository to an archive file, and how to load multiple dump archives
into a single repository.
This is really a question for the users at subversion.tigris.org list
as it relates to the server rather than the client.
