I'm intrigued as to how people would answer this. Obviously, if you're only going to sync the repos once per week, you're going to be fundamentally limited by that.
Is your solution to use patchfiles? It should be pretty straightforward.
svn diff -rxxx:HEAD > patchfile
where xxx is the revision number that was last synced.

I am looking for suggestions from the community as to how best address the setup issue outlined below. We have two sites wanting to use Subversion that are performing parallel development of the same software. Due to security restrictions, the two sites are unable to communicate electronically; all data transfers must be via media (CD-ROM/DVD). Site A is the main site and is responsible for overall configuration control. Is there a way to setup the two subversion repositories to somehow automate keeping the two repositories in sync? We are usually passing media back and forth once a week, but currently we are doing a manual sync process that is both time-consuming and error-prone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
