Re: Compressed Dump Files

Right I can see my mistake on the pipeline now, but I guess I didn't
state the original problem as well as I should have...

The benefit of this would be in remote piping. Like the following:

svnadmin dump /Users/rhunt/tmp/svn_test --revision 1 --incremental |
gzip -9 - | ssh remotehost "cat > /path/to/backups/svn-dump_1.gz"
or
svnadmin dump /Users/rhunt/tmp/svn_test --revision 1 --incremental |
gzip -9 - | ssh remotehost "zcat | svnadmin load /path/to/new/repos"

It looks as if all the errors were self inflicted...

Thanks for the extra set of eyes...
