These are some ideas for implementing an offsite backup facility for Gnosis. See (p3,back-do) for backing up discreet objects. See (new-ideas,03) concerning tape checkpoints.

An offsite backup facility will consist of a method of taking tape dumps of Gnosis files and making incremental change tapes of the changes that occur as Gnosis runs. These, combined with a program to use the tapes to place a set of Gnosis packs in a consistent state will allow a Gnosis system to be brought up from tape backup.

An unimplemented idea along these lines:

A tape backup scheme (not documented here) has been produced.
