You make a typo. The & puts the command in the background and the >
redirects the next command to the output file. I think you wanted
"2>" here. No need for >& to do synchronous updates since this is a
different file from fd 1.


  /usr/bin/svnadmin dump /var/svn --revision $REV --incremental > /backup/svn_backups/dump$REV 2> /tmp/postout.txt

Easier to redirect all output to a file for all commands. See the
additional 'exec' line below for an example.

  exec >/tmp/post-commit.out 2>&1
  /usr/bin/svnadmin dump /var/svn --revision $REV --incremental > /backup/svn_backups/dump$REV
