Backing up repository

From: Roger Lipscombe <rogerl_at_1e.com>

Currently, we're using hot-backup.py on Windows to snapshot our
repository before backing it up. Two questions:


1. It doesn't seem to be paying any attention to the part where
it's supposed to keep only the last N snapshots. This is causing our IT
bods a bit of grief, because the snapshot directory is filling up. Has
anyone seen this behaviour, or have any suggestions for fixing it?
2. Do I need to use it at all? Can I backup a FSFS repository while
it's being used? Could we just stop Apache while the backup job's
running, and restart it again in the morning?
