Incremental Dumps question

From: Robert Denton <robert_at_headsprout.com>

I would like to leverage dumpfiles as a backup mechanism for my repo. I would like to do a weekly dump with nightly incremental dumps. Would the following accomplish this goal?

in crontab:
1 12 * * 0 root svnadmin dump /svn/repo > /svn/dumpfiles/repo_dump

in cron.daily:
svnadmin dump --incremental /svn/repo >> /svn/dumpfiles/repo_dump

I guess my questions are: Is the --incremental switch capable of determining where the dumpfile left off, such that I do not need to specify revision numbers via the -r switch? Also, can I use the append operator (>>) to append the incremental dump to the original dumpfile, or is it necessary to create a new dumpfile each night?
