I tried Magic Carpet when it was first announced, and it was a good
backup/archive/version-control system, but I don't remember anything
about auto-update, and there's nothing about auto-update in the web
pages about Magic Carpet.

I did (eventually) find that advice. It's well hidden because some other
emails in the archive refer to it, but have the wrong link. It should be
and you're right, lots of good advice, looks like a good system, etc. I
was just hoping for some working example to start from.
Richard Gaskin has most of this in the auto-download used in RevNet, so
I may try taking that and expanding it into auto-updater. Sounds like
a project for a quiet evening ....
