Verifying Backups

From: Chris Jensen <cjensen_at_edex.com.au>

I've got backups running on my repositories using svn-hot-backup and an
svnadmin dump --incremental and they seem to be going fine. But to be on
the safe side, I'd like to have them periodically (say once a week, or
once a month) verified automatically - ie have a script check that the
backup dumps can construct a valid repository, and that repository is
equivalent to the production repository.

How would I go about this - obviously I could simply svnadmin load the
backups into a new repository and that would verify that they can create
a repository, but how can I script something to compare it to an
existing repository? Is this possible?
