here's a shell script I cooked up.

It assumes the repo is stored in /Volumes/Repodisk/svnowner/svnroot
and hotcopies it to a new directory called /Volumes/Repodisk/svnowner/
svnroot_backup/$DATE. It then tar-gzs the backup. Finally, it scps
it to another machine on the network. Works fine on Mac OS X.
You'll need to make sure your ssh-agent is running.


DATE=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`

echo "Starting svnadmin hotcopy:"
svnadmin hotcopy $SVNROOT $SVNBKUP
echo "Starting archive process:"
tar -cvzf $ZIPPED $SVNBKUP
echo "Copying archive over network:"
echo "Done!"
