If you're using fsfs as your back-end database, rsync should still work
for you.

(Other readers check my facts, please.)

With FSFS, old revisions don't change, period. (They call them immutable.)

Every time there is a new commit, a revision file for that version is
created. rsync will pick up that there is a new file in the repository
folder and copy that new file only.

Other files in the repository may change for other reasons that I have
no information on, but a scheduled rsync against the repository folder
should do "the right thing".
