Step 6 created the repos in our system with writable permissions, so we
had to make sure nobody could commit to the repo while we loaded back i
the dump file in step 9.

Most restores for us took about 5-10 minutes, a few of our larger repos
took a few hours.

Mmm, we could have used "stat -c 0%a /path/to/file", but with the script
to set our permissions, and because we structure our repos as
"category-reponame", we can set permissions across entire categories
easily with the script.

Since we use svn+ssh, repository permissions matter a bit more for us.
