Just wanted to post this quick bash script to iterate over the repositories in a directory, perform an svnadmin hotcopy, and tar/gzip the output.
By using hotcopy this can be performed on a live subversion repository and will produce a pristine backup.
#!/bin/bash REPOS_PATH=/var/repos mkdir -p /backups/weekly rm -rf /backups/tmp mkdir -p /backups/tmp/repos for i in $(ls $REPOS_PATH); do /path/to/svnadmin hotcopy $REPOS_PATH/$i /backups/tmp/repos/$i done FN=svn.weekly.`date '+%Y%m%d'`.tar.gz tar -czf /backups/weekly/$FN -C /backups/tmp .
