I've added a note to the end of http://web.mit.edu/ghudson/info/fsfs
about backups. If you want to simply rsync or otherwise incrementally
back up an FSFS repository, you need to be prepared to do some simple
manual repair on the copied repository in the unlikely event that you
hit a commit just at the wrong point. Otherwise, use svnadmin hotcopy
for now.
