Hi Cleve, :)
Thanks for posting this, and welcome to the forums!
I will keep this very short and simple on purpose so that there's no confusion:BETA YET WORKING:
Even though this feature is in the BETA version of importbuddy.php (included in BackupBuddy), we beleive it is very stable and can be used directly.NO NEW BAD REPORTS CURRENTLY:
We do not have any current active reports of this feature causing any issues OR not working at all. That basically tells us that it is working perfectly in MANY cases or properly for people who are using it.BETA = BETA:
Of course, you already read more on the "Beta" status, so while we say that you can try it, you can decide on your own if you want to proceed or not.BACKUP ITSELF IS STABLE:
Remember, however: the BACKUP part of BackupBuddy is STABLE. So even if something (theoretically) goes wrong, your backup file itself will be there intact with your actual data working.TESTING IS YOUR FRIEND:
You can always TEST this on a sample domain or site to see what you encounter.
Hope that explains more! Summary:
while it's still in beta, it currently works and we think it's ready to be used currently and should be STABLE release soon.
