I created my own script and tar and gzip the tar file, then move that gziped
file to a different machine for storage. Weekly I put a copy on CD.
I tested setting up CVS on a different box, then unzip and untar'ed one of
my files to make sure the new instance of CVS would see the repository, it

I need to back up/mirror a CVS repository to a diffrent server.
Can anybody recommend a standard way for doing this or will I have to
write my own scripts?
I thought about using rsync, but there is the problem that the CVS
must be in a consistent state (ie nobody commiting) during the copy process.

Thank you
