A daily cronjob that does this:
1.  creates a hotcopy of your subversion repository.
2.  compresses the hotcopy.
3.  uploads it to a ftp site.
4.  notifies the admin about status.

I run this on an old P120 running openbsd,
it takes ~15 minutes to complete.
On my job I run it on a fast 2GHz box, where
it takes less than 5 seconds.

* The FTP code has been refactored (now ~200 lines).
* Now it actual work on my own server.
