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), as
that would result in inconsistencies. You have to snapshot the
filesystem, which may not be that easy (depending on the filesystem).

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