I have read svn book and mailing list about this topic. I'd like to
summarize them and make sure what I understand meets my requirements. thank
you for your opinios first.

Backup repository perodically and in case of failure, restore backup
repository as first repository.
We are using FSFS

A few choices:

1. svnadmin hotcopy

2. shut down public access to copy directory manually

3. incremental backup

4. hot-backup.py

5. svnsync

6. write a new backup script

Look like choice #1 is simple. I just need to write a con job to run it
periodically. The drawback is if backup happens in the middle of commit,
backup has obsolete information.

Which choice is the most used one in a large repository like a few hundread
of Mega?
