We are using OBS already for some time but haven't made any backups yet.
Is there a way to backup an OBS system, OBS mysql database and filesystems?

Anything wrong with rsync and mysqldump?

Well, usually you don't "rsync" online databases (mysql or svn)

Well that's why I said mysqldump.

that would result in inconsistencies.

Can't be worse than when the kernel locks up and you need a force
reboot.

So, for mysql it should be mysqldump, and for svn it should be
"svnadmin dump".

OBS does not use svn, but its own storage methodology (namely, mostly
plain files).
