RE: Files changed on svn update

We don't back up working copies at all. Since we try to keep the repository
fairly up-to-date from our working copies, we just do "svnadmin dump repos >
dump_nnnn" then "gzip dump_nnnn", and back that file up to CD-ROM or another
hard drive (it's recently become too large for a CD-ROM). Then, not only do
we save the latest committed version of the project, we also have all the
history.
