My 25G repository filled 75G of dump then bailed out because of lack of disk space, so I'd like to know how much more space do I need to buy. Before you go telling me "get yourself a 1T external disk" I must underline that we have heaps of policies for requesting storage, for using storage, for NAS and SAN and RAID and whatnot so I really need to know how much I should ask for.

What about svn dump <repo> | wc -c
