Name

svnsync synchronize (sync) — Transfer all pending revisions from the source repository to the mirror repository.

Synopsis

svnsync synchronize DEST_URL [SOURCE_URL]

Description

The svnsync synchronize command does all the heavy lifting of a repository mirroring operation. After consulting with the mirror repository to see which revisions have already been copied into it, it then begins to copy any not-yet-mirrored revisions from the source repository.

svnsync synchronize can be gracefully canceled and restarted.

When SOURCE_URL is provided, svnsync will use it as the repository URL which the destination repository is mirroring. Generally, SOURCE_URL will be exactly the same source URL as was used with the svnsync initialize command when the mirror was first set up. You may choose, however, to omit SOURCE_URL, in which case svnsync will consult the mirror repository's records to determine the source URL which should be used.

[Warning] Warning

We strongly recommend that you specify the source URL on the command-line, especially when untrusted users have write access to the revision 0 properties which svnsync uses to coordinate its efforts.

Options

Examples

Copy unsynchronized revisions from the source repository to the mirror repository:

$ svnsync synchronize file:///var/svn/repos-mirror \

Committed revision 1.

Committed revision 2.
