So today, after an "rm" error while working with the autoburt.pl script and burt restores in general, I asked Dan Kozak how to actually look at the backup data. He said there's no way to actually look at it at the moment. You can reverse the rsync command or ask him to grab the data/file if you know what you want. However, in the course of this, we realized there was no /cvs/cds data backup.
Turns out, the rsync command line in the script had a "-n" option. This means do a dry run. Everything *but* the actual final copying.
I have removed the -n from the script and started it on nodus, so we're backing up as of 5:22pm today.
I'm thinking we should have a better way of viewing the backup data, so I may ask Dan and Stewart about a better setup where we can login and actually look at the backed up files.
In addition, tomorrow I'm planning to add cron jobs which will put changes to files in the /chans and /scripts directories into the SVN on a daily basis, since the backup procedure doesn't really provide a history for those, just a 1 day back backup.
