So, for mysql it should be mysqldump, and for svn it should be

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

Curious, because osc feels a lot like svn. Why would it reinvent the wheel?

Historical reasons, mostly. The storage format used in OBS predates
OBS by a couple of years. It's actually much more related to git than svn,
e.g. it uses a hash to identify file sets.
