I have done this. I just constructed the necessary directory structure
and files by hand. I don't know if there's a better way (anybody?).
I used an existing vault to copy from. You need to make the directory
- the vault directory
- the dirvish subdirectory
- default.conf - create as you wish
- default.hist - copy a couple of lines from an existing vault
- an initial image subdirectory (e.g. 2007-09-25)
- a sub-directory 'tree' containing your existing image
- a file named summary
- a file named log
'summary' contains a copy of a summary file from another vault, with the
details adjusted appropriately.
My version of 'log' contains enough information for one of my custom
scripts. I believe dirvish doesn't need the file at all.
