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


svnsync synchronize DEST_URL


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.
