Aegir batch site backup script

Many Aegir users ask whether there is a way to schedule backups of all sites provisioned in Aegir. Currently at the time of writing, no such scheduling exists within Aegir itself, since we have a few design decisions to work out (such as where to store the backups, especially when multi-server comes in!)

For the meantime, here's a crude little shell script that might help you. You should execute it as the aegir user.

I then show how you can add the build as a Platform in Aegir, and rapidly provision sites on it in a multisite structure.
