SFTP transfer scripts

I've made a set of scripts to send files from one server to another in a secure and reliable way. The idea was to use the standard UNIX/Linux tools as much as possible, because this allows admins to customize the entire process to their hearts content. A new program using libraries would certainly be more limiting.

The project is published here:

It is using SFTP to transfer files from A to B and the configuration is written with Ubuntu systems in mind. The entire setup can optionally use a chrooted sftp setup. The project demonstrates full design details and a complete installation manual.
