Re: repository administration tasks

I would like to answer this part of your question.

In many development environments and for reasonable
projects, let's say 1,000,000 million lines of code
or less, you might want to skip the backups, and
just have every developer check out the entire
library to their personal computer. They each
back up each other, as long as they check things
back in, in a reasonable amount of time.

This theory fails, if people keep things checked out
for a long period of time, but that failure
might still not induce you to take backups,
except at the moment when you have a
successful test case, in which case you would
do a cold-start build and copy that into the
test backup location.
