No problem.  Can you point me to anything that will get me started
understanding the existing process and will I need any additional
privileges (access to the master repository, etc.).  I worked up a
quick and dirty perl script to fix my repository that I should be able
to rework for the master. If the repository is held on a zfs
filesystem on another box it would be nice to have access to that box
to setup and run the process (use of zfs snaphots makes me a lot less
nervous about linking/unlinking a large number of files).
