i have a subversion 1.6, it has one repo and mirrored repo. The mirrored repo is read only ofcourse. is there a way to commit and sync between these repos in both directions ?
Have you looked at http://www.wandisco.com/subversion/replication? They do a whole line of products related to multi-site SVN, but they cost. Never tried them, myself, but that's where I ended up when I last looked for this.
You are going to get into a whole heap of problems trying to do it manually but, the closest I got was:
I'll save you the effort -- it didn't work very well. An absolute mare to setup and fraught with race conditions (you just cannot synchronise the semaphore file fast enough).
Short answer: No
Longer answer: you can use "svnadmin dump-transfer dump- delete repo -recreate repo - svnadmin load" path, but it's nightmare
PS: DVCS seems as more natural solution in your case
