Re: Safest way to backup an FSFS repo?

Could be just me, but I like to create my dump file into a single file
rather than have a completely separate folder structure. So I use
'svnadmin dump' and then also make a manual copy of the hooks directory
and compress it 'tar -cvvf /tmp/hooks.tar /path/to/repos/hooks/'. Now I
only have two files to make sure get backed up. And if I need to make
them portable, it is easier to copy those two files than directory
structures.

just my 2 cents.

Regards,
Frank
