RE: Re: Lack of Subversion repository recovery tools

Hi Ulrich,

I completely agree that you need to use backups but I think that subversion should also have some tools to repair revisions so that you can at least get the repository back into a consistent state even if there is data loss.

Surely, any production-ready version control system has such a tool?

Huh? To me that was always clear:
- Create new repository.
- Load last backup into repository.
- Dump the revisions since the backup incrementally.
- Load the incremental revisions into new repository.
- Copy over configuration from old repository.

Just in case there is any confusion about the point: _Subversion is NOT a
replacement for backups_! If you don't do backups, you better start doing so
now, Subversion can't do it for you.
