Re: Possible security problem with svnsync?

I would guess that svnsync was designed under the assumption that it
would be run on the slave repository via a cron job or something. It's
a pull tool, not a push tool.

That said, your suggestion seems reasonable.

(When I've set up replicated repositories using push, I've used svnadmin
dump and svnadmin load, not svnsync. But that doesn't work for your
scenario since it doesn't obey authz rules.)
