Dear all,
here [*1*] the Pull Request implementing GeoNode/GeoServer Backup and
Restore and Migration.

I will add detailed documentation on GeoNode docs as soon as the PR has
been accepted and merged.

This is briefly how it works.
Basically the PR implements two new GeoNode Management Commands, 'backup'
and 'restore'.
Both commands allows you to:

1. Fully backup GeoNode data and fixtures on a zip archive
2. Fully backup GeoServer configuration (physical datasets - tables,
shapefiles, geotiffs) must be copied manually on the GeoServer data dir
3. Fully restore GeoNode and GeoServer fixtures and catalog from the zip
4. Migrate fixtures from old GeoNode models to the new one

The usage of those commands is quite easy and straight.
The first step is to be sure that everything is correctly configured on the
"settings.py" and "local_settings.py"; next just review the
"geonode/base/management/commands/settings.ini" and ensure the few
requested variables are all correctly configured.

In order to perform a *backup* just run the command:

*python manage.py backup --backup-dir=/tmp/*

In order to perform a *restore* just run the command:

*sudo python manage.py restore --backup-file=/tmp/2016-09-09_053358.zip*

It is worth notice that this functionality *requires* the latest GeoServer
Extension (*2.9.x*) for GeoNode in order to correctly work

I would also like to advise that in the past few days I pushed several
fixes to the GeoServer Ext for GeoNode, in particular:

1. Added the GeoServer Backup and Restore plugin
2. Fixed the printing module dependency preventing GeoServer to generate
3. Added a correct rule on the REST security file in order to access the
printing endpoint
4. Minor fixes mainly on dependencies

Best Regards,
Alessio Fabiani.
