First Great Thanks to the Geoffrey C, Dale Brackin, Niko Winckel, and Nicholas Dionysopoulos, for this tremendeously useful package. Backup and now Recovery using the "kickstart" feature is manageable. One little undocumented feature is that you can build a base install create a copy of the whole install with JoomlaPack, run a restore to another site make modifications and voila you now have 2 Joomla installs with all the components and settings of the original without having to redo the whole process. When you are building several Joomla installs with similar requirements or simply testing out a new extension JoomlaPack saves a lot of time.
Thanks once again to the team
