That's what we use here:

-- snip --

#!/bin/bash

# discard standard error output [1]
exec 2> /dev/null

# args
REPOS="$1"
REV="$2"

postfix=$(printf "%05d" ${REV})
dirhash=$(printf "%02d" $((REV / 1000)) )
/bin/mkdir -p ${DUMPDIR}/${REPOS}/dumps/${dirhash}
/usr/bin/svnadmin dump ${REPOS} -r ${REV} --incremental \
  | /usr/bin/bzip2 --stdout \
> ${DUMPDIR}/${REPOS}/${dirhash}/dump.${postfix}.bz2

-- snip --

[1] before we added this, we sometimes saw hanging post-commit-hook scripts.

Regards,
Thomas
