1. Use the hotcopy script to make a duplicate of your repository.
2. 'svnadmin dump' the copy and backup that data - it's the repository's
content.
3. If you're really paranoid, backup the configuration data from (the copy of)
your repository. Which configuration data you have depends on your access
method, but the contents of the 'conf' subdir are a candidate. You should
know which those are, you modified them by hand when setting up the
repository.
