ModeShape offers an API for performing backup/restore (which can be used by clients to migrate their data). However, in practice this requires writing 3rd party code which uses this API, which may not always be easy.
This issue is about enhancing ModeShape's REST service and allowing an easier way for clients to perform backup/restore. See linked JIRA for a more in-depth discussion.
This issue has to be both part of the the DV 6.1 rollup patch - so that clients can perform the backup using DV 6.1, and as part of DV 6.2 - so that clients can restore the data backed up in 6.1.
Implemented into 3.9.x-prod-ip6.2.
