comment Sporadic crash of master-slave MySQL replication process
So the problem is really that your binary log doesn't have the contents it should? Can you reproduce that? If the binary log is wrong, then the behavior of the replicas is understandable. Save the binary logs, save the world!

comment What is archive mode in rsync?
I think you're missing the point that it's important to read the man page to know exactly what you're doing. rsync has some very powerful options, including a way to delete files! It's like your asking for help on using a table saw because you don't like reading instruction manuals.

comment SVN hook / svn up / conflict
@kaerast I worked at a place where the boss liked to edit in the working copy that we used as the production document root. Having conflicts in that would be embarrassing! See blog.joopp.com/2008/12/15/flickr-version-control

comment SVN hook / svn up / conflict
The question isn't about commits. The question is, if doing an svn update would cause a conflict with local modifications, can the commit be aborted before any files are changed at all.
