[DragonFlyBSD - Bug #2527] Re: git: build: implement automatic world backups

From: John Marino via Redmine <bugtracker-admin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Issue #2527 has been updated by marino.

A local backup wouldn't need several levels of directories filled with "hostname" and "arch" since neither will ever change.  It implies that it would be backed up in a common area with multiple hostnames and archs. (and do we need to protect for a case where the there are two arches with the same hostname?).  Seems like overkill for the default.

Bug: This breaks on NFS object trees as the copy tries to set flags,
which can't be done over NFS


1) getting an 'off button' back for this would be swell
2) build(7) should probably be updated with whatever the final result is.

personally, I'd prefer this was optional behavior with an 'on' switch,
(e.g. it seems sort of like a 'developer setting' like CFLAGS, etc)

but, that's me.

sorry to back seat drive with no attched patch - lifes a bit hectic ATM.
