The above error suggests that it isn't finding your 'svnadmin' tool. If
you edit hotcopy.py, there are two lines at the top:
  # Path to svnlook utility
  svnlook = "/usr/local/bin/svnlook"

  # Path to svnadmin utility
  svnadmin = "/usr/local/bin/svnadmin"

You need to edit those paths so that they point to the 'svnlook' and
'svnadmin' tool, respectively.
