Backing up a jail



I'm considering backing up a jail created with ezjail 3.3

My goal: do not backup the basejail, but backup everything else.

All backups will be performed from on the host system, not from within the jail.

Given a jail at /usr/jails/example.org, I plan to exclude the following directories:

bin
boot
lib
libexec
rescue
sbin
usr/bin
usr/games
usr/include
usr/lib
usr/lib32
usr/libdata
usr/libexec
usr/ports
usr/sbin
usr/share
usr/src

Why?  They all point to the basejail, which will be backed up separately.

Any comments?  Questions?
