Subject Re: Backup tool for Jackrabbit
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2006 11:14:40 GMT
Thanks Nicolas.

I am very interested in being able to use this for migration of data to a
new version of a repository - I think its a critical feature, suprised no
one has asked for it yet ! So I would encourage you to look into it !

So what needs to be done to add in this feature?
