Hunt_n_gather is a script which attempts to determine the entries within a filesystem that should be backed up. It does this by noting which files are not listed in a system's rpm database, have been modified if installed as part of an rpm, etc. Once hunt_n_gather has a list of such files, it copied them to the directory given on the command line.
