Replying on users list:

Assuming you have SVN already installed and running;

- Install the svn python bindings onto the server. The bindings version
should correspond to your version of svn.

- Get the copy of hot-backup.py.in from tools\backup and copy it to
where you want to execute it from (server side) and change the name to

- Edit hot-backup.py and change the following:
a) shebang line (optional)

b) Change the occurences of @SVN_BINDIR@ to point to the bin directory
of your subversion installation

c) Edit the num_backups variable to the desired number of backups you
want to keep around (optional).

- Now you should be able to run the program.
