RE: Re: hot-backup.py and umask

Although it's not necessarily the case on my system, shouldn't there be one account responsible for all backup operations? For me, that account is root, but I could or should define another account that has just enough privileges to backup Subversion repositories and other data on the system.

IANA sysadmin, so responses on the best practice for secure backup and storage is welcome.

What about running the actual hot-backup script as the svn user? The
root user can do something like this:

# su - svn -c "hot-backup.py ..."
