comment Is there a way to rsync in batches?
Generally, my approach is to run the indexing on the same computer (i.e. not transfer those files again to some remote service). In this case, I'd try to checkout the data on the server which runs Alfresco instead of the davfs mount.

I don't know much about davfs and how it responds to various operations but maybe you can try to checkout the subversion inside of the davfs mount. The problem here is that svn will do several read/write operations per file so this may be bad for large files (not probably not so bad if you have just many files). After the checkout/update, Alfresco should see some files with changes dates. If this change can trigger the reindex, then this should be very efficient.

comment How can I find out which user logged in as root?
Hm :-/ I'm wondering what the security implications are when we create dozens of user accounts on our many servers. Feels like one of the security dilemmas: Comfort vs. security. If I use .authorized_keys, I have a single file (with a very simple format) but I can't easily find out who connected. sshsudo looks interesting but I wonder how sshpass does its magic.

Actually, I'd prefer a "this user can execute this command with root permissions" command/tool (so your actions would still be logged under your user). I don't want to become root, I just need its permissions. Kind of "you can do anything you want but whoami still returns digulla.

When I wrote this, sudo wasn't very common. Today, I'd say sudo is nice if you admin just a single machine and/or if you have to run just a single command. But in my case, 90% of the time, I need to do remote work. So I ssh and then I'd have to sudo. If you switch between local and remote all the time and you have to run many commands, I still prefer ssh (or one way to do everything).
