It is a 'cp -l' with a builtin 'vunify'. It uses the same exclude
list mechanism like 'vunify' so that certain files will be copied
instead of linked (e.g. cfg-files), or skipped entirely (e.g. ssh
hostkeys, user data).
Basic usage (requires 0.30.203+) is
| # mkdir -p /etc/vservers/<source>/apps/vunify
| (+ configure special exclude lists)
| # /usr/lib/util-vserver/vunify <dst> <src>
But it is not mature enough to document it somewhere else ;)
(e.g. '-n' does not really work, <source> *requires* a supported
Vserver mailing list
