what we do here is using post-commit hook scripts on the server to dump 
the commit data to a queue folder and transfer these files periodically 
(every 5 mins) to our backup system. Additionally, all changed repos are 
dumped nightly. Thus, we have near realtime recovery possibility 
whenever desaster strikes (which it never did in over 10 years now, 
probably because of our backup/recovery strategy ;-)).
