       SVN::Notify::Mirror::Rsync - Mirror a repository path via Rsync


       Use svnnotify in post-commit:

         svnnotify --repos-path "$1" --revision "$2" \
          --handler Mirror::Rsync --to "/path/to/local/htdocs" \
          [--svn-binary /full/path/to/svn] \
          --rsync-host remote_server \
          [--rsync-delete=[yes|no]] \
          [--rsync-dest "/path/on/remote/server"] \
          [--rsync-args arg1 [--rsync-args arg2...]]
          [[--rsync-ssh] [--ssh-user remote_user] \
          [--ssh-identity /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa]]

       or better yet, use SVN::Notify::Config for a more sophisticated setup:

         #!/usr/bin/perl -MSVN::Notify::Config=$0
         --- #YAML:1.0
           PATH: "/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin"
           handler: Mirror
           to: "/path/to/www/htdocs"
           handler: Mirror
           to: "/path/to/local/www/htdocs"
           rsync-host: "remote_host"
           rsync-dest: "/path/on/remote/www/htdocs"
           ssh-user: "remote_user"
           ssh-identity: "/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa"


       Keep a directory in sync with a portion of a Subversion repository.  Typically used to
       keep a development web server in sync with the changes made to the repository.  This
       directory can either be on the same box as the repository itself, or it can be remote (via
       SSH connection).


       Depending on whether the target is a "Local Mirror" or a Remote Mirror, there are
       different options available.  All options are available either as a commandline option to
       svnnotify or as a hash key in SVN::Notify::Config (see their respective documentation for
       more details).

   Working Copy on Local host
       Because 'svn export' is not able to be consistently updated, the local rsync'd directory
       must be a full working copy.  The remote server will only contain the ordinary files (no
       Subversion admin files).

       The files in the working copy must be writeable (preferrably owned) by the user identity
       executing the hook script (this is the user identity that is running Apache or svnserve

Local Mirror

       Please see SVN::Notify::Mirror for details.

   Remote Mirror
       Used for directories not located on the same machine as the repository itself.  Typically,
       this might be a production web server located in a DMZ, so special consideration must be
       paid to security concerns.  In particular, the remote mirror server may not be able to
       directly access the repository box.

       ·   rsync-host

           This value is required and must be the hostname or IP address of the remote host
           (where the mirror directories reside).

       ·   rsync-delete

           The default mode of operation is to delete remote files which are not present in the
           local working copy.  NOTE: this will delete any unversioned files in the remote
           directory tree.  Unless you have all of your files under version control, you should
           pass the "--no-rsync-delete" or "--rsync-delete no" option.

       ·   rsync-dest

           This optional value specifies the path to update on the remote host.  If you do not
           specify this value, the same path as passed in as the "--to" parameter will be used
           (this may not be what you meant to do).

       ·   rsync-args

           This optional parameter can be used to pass additional commandline options to the
           rsync command.  You can use this multiple times in order to pass multiple options.
           The default args are "--archive --compress".  See the "rsync-ssh" options for using
           SSH instead of RSH (rather than pass those commands via "--rsync-args"

       ·   rsync-ssh

           This optional parameter signals that you wish to use SSH instead of whatever the
           default remote shell program is configured in your copy of rsync.  You may need to set
           one or more of the "ssh-*" parameters as well.

       ·   ssh-user

           If the remote user is different than the local user executing the postcommit script,
           you can specify it with this parameter.  You would often use this in conjunction with
           the next parameter.

       ·   ssh-identity

           This value may be optional and should be the full path to the local identity file
           being used to authenticate with the remote host. If you are setting the ssh-user to be
           something other than the local user name, you will typically also have to set the ssh-
