From post-commit AFAIK.

IMO, yes.

Shouldn't be [other than due to the next commit ;]

I know I run in it in the background, no sleep, since it is post-commit
and the commit of a single revision was completed. Running the backup
at that point ensures you get a backup that includes the committed
revision. Running it in the background will also make your post-commit
hook return control back to mod_dav_svn sooner.
