Backup Package

Well I am finally getting around to publishing the Backup Package that I have been using on my current day job project.  Back in September we had a build server die on us.  It was not difficult to get a replacement up and running though we did lose the history of the build project.  That is to say that the CCNet build logs and state file were lost.  I was able to rebuild the state file by hand but the log files were just plain lost.  I created this simple Backup Package to keep us out of this kind of trouble in the future.  One of the main reasons that I remembered to sit down and release this Package was that same projects build server died again this week and this time recovery was complete.  Anyway I have uploaded the Package zip to the Google Project Hosting service and created documentation for it as well.


P.S. Hidden in there is the Post Build extension.
