Just bear in mind that a second copy of a repository sitting on a hard
drive somewhere doesn't constitute a "true" backup - it's just another
copy which *may* be usable as a backup. It's not offsite, it's on a
medium that's prone to mechanical failure and data corruption, and
it's easily destroyed.
