AMANDA logs to Confluence
# Daily Backup Confluence Bridge
# jesse pearson
# Purpose:
# Used to send the Amanda backup logs into a Confluence page and
# attach a PDF output summary to the given page.
# Dependencies:
# cadaver
# Caveats:
# - Hardcoded page name; this can be changed via a variable, but there is no logic to
# determine if the page name has changed.
# - Scheduled to run under amandabackup user's crontab.
# - Uses cadaver, a webDAV interface, to upload.
# - Output .txt file must be the same name as Confluence page (set by cPage).
# Changelog:
# 12.21.2007 | jp | Added trimming of excess strange/failure details to keep filesize low.
# 12.03.2007 | jp | Fixed issue with duplicate PDFs being sent to Confluence
# 11.30.2007 | jp | created basic functionality
# Pre-run cleanup
