Quick post here, to mention that if you still use the old (non Python-based) zfs-auto-snapshot SMF service, since mediacast.sun.com went away, and hg.opensolaris.org is no more, there’s not really anywhere for this service to live.

While this code was never intended to be any sort of enterprise-level backup facility, I still use this on my own systems at home, and it continues to work away happily.

I’ve uploaded a copy of the latest repository here, version 0.12, including a recent patch submitted by Jim Klimov, along with some Makefile changes to build an IPS package as part of the build.

For the IPS package, I’ve moved the service manifest to /lib/svc/manifest but left it in /var/svc/manifest for the SVR4 package.
