Chef-tarsnap


#1

We’ve open-sourced the cookbook and knife plugin that Taxi Magic uses to
manage off-site backups. The chef-tarsnap cookbook contains a recipe to set
up tarsnap and the feather backup scheduler. LWRP’s are provided to
configure your own rotation schedule, backup targets, and tarsnap keys. A
knife plugin is included to manage keys and archived data.

Any and all feedback is welcome!

Really nice!

We’ve been doing most of this stuff with our own cookbook (tarsnap +
tarsnapper), but we never even tried to automate keys managed.
Also, feather looks good!

Why don’t you take over the http://community.opscode.com/cookbooks/tarsnap name
?
