If you have a newer Subversion, svnsync is great for this, albeit 
without the md5 sums. The destination repository is an exact replica, 
revision properties and all, of the source repo.


   svnadmin create /srv/svn/myrepo.bak
   echo '#!/bin/sh' > /srv/svn/myrepo.bak/hooks/pre-revprop-change
   chmod +x /srv/svn/myrepo.bak/hooks/pre-revprop-change
   svnsync init file:///srv/svn/myrepo.bak http://src.me.com/svn/myrepo
   svnsync sync file:///srv/svn/myrepo.bak

Then, somewhat regularly,

   svnsync sync file:///srv/svn/myrepo.bak
