Subversion Handy Backup (SHB)

Purpose:
create a repository backup, compress, encrypt and split
it into small chunks that can be mailed to a gmail account.

Actually its a Rake file with the following rules:

rake backup # creates a hotcopy backup of the repository.
rake checkout # checkout’s a working copy.
rake clean # wipe all temporary files.
rake create # creates an empty repository that is FSFS based.
rake recover # recover a repository from chunks.

Similar the “recover” rule concats the chunks, decrypt, and
decompress it.

prerequisits:

  • ruby-1.8.x
  • rake
  • tmail
  • GPG is used for doing an symmetric encryption.
  • subversion

If you find it useful then please consider contributing.
