simple ftp backup script

I have made a simple backup script, you might want to use it as an
example - I know as a newbie that it took me some time to do, and if it
had been in an FAQ or something I would have saved a lot of time. A
nyway you can include it or leave it out, up to you.
I found an issue with hot-back.py (under Mandrake 9.1) , I couldn't
execute it during the http session, some environment issues - it
couldn't find the required modules to import. I would "su apache" and
it worked fine, execute it via an http commit hook and it would fail. I
made sure paths where the same in both environments - still didn't work.
To make it work I changed the top line to invoke python directly
old: #!/usr/bin/env python
new: #!/usr/bin/python
execute it from post-commit with:
svnbackup $REPOS $REV
#DATE=$(date --iso-8601='minute') #colon causes too much trouble
DATE=$(date +%Y-%m-%d+%H-%M-%S)
tar --use-compress-program bzip2 -cf $REPOS.tar.bz2 $REPOS
rm -rf $REPOS
lftp -c "open ftp://xxx:xxx@domain/svn_backup/; put $REPOS.tar.bz2" &
