At one point I know, we were planning on doing this via a script which could
run as a cron job. That way, every revision of every node could be checked
periodically for corruption. Otherwise, it would still only be reported on

For now storing the checksums would be nice, a second step would be to write a
script (using the swig bindings to libsvn_fs maybe?) to cycle through
everything that has a checksum and verify that the checksum is correct. Then
we can throw that script in tools/ and recommend that administrators set up a
cron job to run it periodically. How often would of course depend on how
paranoid the administrator was.

For more of this check the archives for sometime last summer. Late July or
early August was I think when we had most of this discussion previously.
