Review Request: xfsdump - Administrative utilities for the XFS filesystem
Last modified: 2010-01-04 16:31:11 EST
The xfsdump package contains xfsdump, xfsrestore and a number of
other utilities for administering XFS filesystems.
xfsdump examines files in a filesystem, determines which need to be
backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other
storage medium. It uses XFS-specific directives for optimizing the
dump of an XFS filesystem, and also knows how to backup XFS extended
attributes. Backups created with xfsdump are "endian safe" and can
thus be transfered between Linux machines of different architectures
and also between IRIX machines.
xfsrestore performs the inverse function of xfsdump; it can restore a
full backup of a filesystem. Subsequent incremental backups can then
be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory
subtrees may be restored from full or partial backups.
Everything looks good here except for gawk isn't needed as a "BuildRequires". Other than that, things look good.
Actually upon further review we may need to have gawk included (it was added earlier to allow the build to function properly).
I approve this package.
Re-assigning to sandeen, as this package was approved by me and I have no idea what needs to happen next.
xfsprogs is, more or less, already in RHEL5.x so I think this is done.
