Well, it would be really simple to use the subprocess.call to
"wrapper" an svnadmin call, which would mirror invocation from the
command line basically but within Python. You could also use the
Subversion Python bindings to make direct Subversion API calls to
perform the dump. There is a very good example of doing this in the
Subversion Python bindings tests:


I hope this helps.
