Is that not something what a shell is usually happy to do for you in a loop?

Anyway, as you may have already read from the documentation, svnsync can
be initialized on non-empty destination repositories which represent a
past state of the on-disk data. One would normally use the hotcopy
operation to get such a consistent copy. However,  if you can stop
commits for a bit this can be done using file system level tools such a
cp/tar/rsync/lvm, some of which can preserve permissions. This has the
added benefit of bypassing the initial sync time, which can be
significant for repositories of non-trivial size.
