Do it now, with David Summers RPM's mentioned on the Subversion web page.

I'd actually do a "svnadmin hotcopy" to copy aside the repository to a dump
location, so that nothing changes while you're doing the backup. Rsync will
only work right with FSFS based repositories, not BDB based ones, unless
it's a static snapshot you're backing up.
