I use the hot-backup.py (python) script, set up as a nightly scheduled
task to do mine.

hot-backup.py is a script which basically does an svnadmin hotcopy (see:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.ref.svnadmin.c.hotcopy)
plus a bunch of niceties about naming, etc.

You end up with a copy of your repository.
