W3C relies on Rewind to backup the different GitHub organizations the groups depend on.
Rewind runs daily backups of all the repositories, including metadata and provides a way to restore a repository if the GitHub support is not able to help.
Rewind App (GitHub)
To start the backup process for a GitHub organization, the user w3cbot must be listed as one of the owners of the organization so it can:
- install the Rewind App to the organization
- import the organization into rewind
- restore a repository when needed
