Hi all,

Looks like I never posted my svn scripts to the list.
I got flamed for not announcing my stuff, so I will do this now...

I wrote multiple scripts for svn:

- svnreplicate


   Replicates a svn repository,
   N writer while master up (master locking)
   N - 1 reader while master down

   It does slave->master->slaveX pushes and is able to poll a repository
   on startup and synchronise with it. It should never blow up your
   repository, but alert you and block on failure.

   Not tested very much.
   Had a working setup with 1 Master and 2 Slaves.

- cvs2svntracking


   Tracks a cvs repository in svn

   In use since a year.

- svnsnapshot


   Does snapshot tar-balls of svn trunk and/or svn tags folders for

   In use since half a year.
   Generates snapshots for https://open.datacore.ch/download

- svnbackup


   Does single commit backup and restore.

   In use since nearly a year.

- svnmerge


   Does merge a range of revisions of one location as single commits to a
   second location. This allows duplication of the single changes in that
   range to a new location.

   I used it to sync one of my project branches with trunk while still
   being able to revert every single commit as you can see in the
   following sample:


I hope this can be of use to someone out there!
