Description Vikram Goyal 2014-07-29 05:36:59 UTC
Expand the backup section info in the Admin and Config Guide based on email thread in the SME list:

Hi Vikram,

I echo Jeremy’s comments. I come across lot of customers who have not yet adopted Git as their version control system.
They actually are concerned when we tell them that BRMS/BPMS is backed by Git. We tell them that it is abstracted away from them for the most part.
So if we can provide a good approach for backing up the repository, it will help ease their concerns.

I would also take this one step further and add some guidelines around how to maintain their maven repository for their BRMS/BPMS deployments.
