Description

Hi,

I'm using the svn handler and it's very useful. However if the export of a SVN repository fails, the backup does not continue.

I currently have about 50 repositories in 18GB to care about.
One day, one of the repositories was corrupted. The svn handler did not move the other healthy repositories to the destination location.

I think the svn handler should continue its work even if one repository fails to be exported. What do you think?

I created a patch for a previous backupninja version. If you're interested and you agree to the above statement, I could update it to the latest version and upload it as an attachment, so you can have a look.

Regards,

Sam.

This would, indeed, be consistent with how other handlers do. We need to be careful about error reporting, though: you don't want to simply ignore failures, and discover at restore time that repo X hasn't been backup'd for month.

A patch against current Git would be most welcome! :)
