Svn Repository
Date: 21/11/2008
Something has corrupted my Svn Repository and it's unrecoverable. Most recent backup is 3 months old, and I still have recent checkout's of most of my apps so I don't think I'll actually lose anything other than the hours of sorting out the mess.
  • Checkout old copy.
  • Merge changes from working copy (I love you WinMerge!).
  • Check for new files/folders, add them to svn.
  • Check that it builds.
  • Commit up to date copy.
  • Repeat for all known checkouts (there are a 100 or so!)

Not what I wanted to do today. I plan to make more frequent backups too. In fact I have mostly finished writing a backup application which I'll be launching before year's end. I should've made sure that was live last week, but who knew?

So, the question is, do you add version information to your backup application so that you can have versioned backups of your version control system?
