Okay, I think I follow but really I don't understand all the systems  
we have running and this is part of a pretty big picture.  I'd much  
rather have other SAC folks prepare a list of what folders we do and  
do not need backed up, then we can submit a ticket to PEER1.

Regarding SVN.. what has changed - i.e. what folders do we not need  
backed up anymore?  Also, which other folders should we be asking to  
specifically backup?  Can I please leave this to SAC to figure this  
out and then tell me what the plan is so I can help make sure it gets  
communicated back to PEER1?

Otherwise all I can think of is backing up /var/www which is the main  
part I know best ;-)

Best wishes,
