Is it a correct way of backup?

   I used to backup my repositories (all repositories under one base
directory in my filesystem) by just tar + bzip on the base directory. Then I
thought of trying another method. Dumping all the repositories using
"svnadmin dump" into one directory and then tar + bzip on that directory. I
was amazed that the size of tar.bz2 file in second case was about 65% of the
tar.bz2 file I used to get in first case.

   My question to the svn gurus is, is my method correct? According my
limited knowledge I see no problems.
