svnrdump dump

Synopsis

svnrdump dump SOURCE_URL

Description

Dump—that is, generate a repository dump stream of—revisions of the repository item located at SOURCE_URL, printing the information to standard output. By default, the entire history will be included in the dump stream, but the scope of the operation can be limited via the use of the --revision (-r) option.

Examples

Generate a dump stream of the full history of a remote repository (assuming that the user as who this runs has authorization to read all paths in the repository).

$ svnrdump dump http://svn.example.com/repos/calc > full.dump
* Dumped revision 0.
* Dumped revision 1.
* Dumped revision 2.
…

Incrementally dump a single revision from that same repository:

$ svnrdump dump http://svn.example.com/repos/calc \
           -r 21 --incremental > full.dump
* Dumped revision 21.
