If you are using SVN 1.4.x consider the use of svnsync. It copies subversion commits to a mirrored repository. This mirrored repository. You can schedule svnsync to run as frequently as you want (every 5 minutes, for example). We are using this now, and it works swimmingly. I have heard others are putting svsync in a post-commit hook to synchronize to a mirrored repository. Hence, you can backup every time there is a commit to your repository. We may switch to using the post-commit hook.

Subject: Subversion Backup
How can we decide on the frequency of backing up Subversion repository. Whether it should be on hourly basis or daily or weekly or monthly ? Please help me on deciding the the frequency of taking backup of Subversion repository so that even if the subversion server goes down we can restore the same from the backup without much loss of data and everything is safe and sound as before.
