Backing up Subversion Repositories using hot-backup.py

Since I have started managing the Backtrack Projects new subversion server I have started to learn some interesting lessons in backup which I didn’t do before. As with most things, once I learn my lesson, I like to make a quick post on the solution so others can learn from my errors. So I was backing up the Berkly database it self for my svn projects but it turns out subversion actually includes a python script for hot back ups.
