NOTE: The endpoints discussed below - /fcr:backup and /fcr:restore - will be moving to an extension module in a future release of Fedora.  The Backup Format (also discussed below) will change at that time.


The Fedora Backup capability allows a user, such as the repository manager, to make a REST call to have the repository binaries and metadata exported to the local file system. The Restore capability allows a user to make a REST call to have the repository restored from the contents of a previous Backup operation. In addition, with the default configuration, files are stored on disk named according to their SHA1 digest, so a filesystem backup approach can also be used.
