Kyle,

thx for your information

I'd like to use them in correct way. Pls correct me if wrong

1. dump/load can be used for repository migration also backup (incremental
option)

2. hotcopy for hot backup where active transaction won't be backed up

3. svnsync? read-only mirror. for backup?

thx

Tim
