That depends on what you mean by minor version.

If (for example) you want to go from 10.1 to 10.1 p3, then a simple svn
fetch will do the trick.

If you're trying to go from 10.0 to 10.1 then you need to point your
repo to the right place.  IE:

svn switch --relocate
&& svn fetch

I'd specifically avoid going from release to release until my systems
were no longer supported and I could no longer get security updates for
them.  Don't fix what isn't broken and all that.
