Subject Old repo backup, checkout current, lost repo, create new repo?
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2018 23:30:43 GMT
I have three svn repos I recently (6 months ago) moved to my private,
remote server. Due to life and negligence, I only have one svn hotcopy of
two of them made immediately after the move.

A week ago the disk with the three repos failed.

I have current copies of each repo’s trunk (I’m not not using branches) and
want to know the best way to get the repos back in place and working again.

I am the only user, and I use the svn+ssh access to the repo completely
owned by myself. History is not terribly important.

>From what I can find in various docs, I think the easiest way to recover is
to copy the 6-month-old hot copy to the original path and resume working
from there as usual (plus make sure my backups work in the future!). For
the other I will just recreate the repo from scratch.

Given that history will be lost, does anyone see any problems with my
recovery plan?

Thanks for any advice.

Best regards,

-Tom
