The buildout backup recipe is almost at 1.0, the last wrinkles are being ironed out. One of the things you can do before a 1.0 is to change a default, which I just did. Every single one of our buildouts had a
gzip = true line in their backup recipe configuration, so the default for collective.recipe.backup is now to gzip the backups.
If you've discovered things that need changing/fixing: speak up quickly before the 1.0 comes out :-)
I totally love the test-driven development that's possible with collective.recipe.backup's test coverage. Making absolutely sure everything works is of course essential for backup scripts!
