Ok I'm trying to implement this idea.

I have the following in my post-commit hook script

#Incremental dump after each commit
INCRDUMP=/usr/local/bin/svnadmin dump --revision PREV:$REV --incremental

I see the $DUMPFILE createad, but has a size of "0" meaing I did the
dump wrong!!! What would be the correct command to dump the changes
for the current commit

INCRDUMP=/usr/local/bin/svnadmin dump --deltas --incremental
