If I need to automate the backup (during the night for example), what I need to do? Can I use AppleScript? Do I need to use unix batch file? What is the best way to do that?

When I backup my CVS respository using FTP, should I
FTP everything as "text" files?

The safe answer is "no". Depending on your setup, a better approach
might be to archive the repository and then transfer the archive as one
file (in binary mode), to help preserve permissions and time stamps (not
to mention reducing transfer times).
