#54 Issue closed: Add various INCLUDE_* options to limit Relax-and-Recover's scope

Labels: won't fix / can't fix / obsolete

Much like we currently allow the following configuration directives:

# Exclude components from being backed up, recreation information is active

# Exclude components during component recreation
# will be added to EXCLUDE_BACKUP (it is not backed up)
# recreation information gathered, but commented out

# Exclude components during the backup restore phase
# Only used to exclude files from the restore.

We would like to have INCLUDE_BACKUP, INCLUDE_RECREATE and INCLUDE_RESTORE. This enables users to specify a limited number of components to backup, recreate or restore.

The INCLUDE_* and EXCLUDE_* options could be mutual exclusive, or could be ordered somehow (up to the developer to see what is possible and how it is implemented).

@rear/contributors too many options are confusing and our default.conf file already contains lots of variables... I'm not in favor of adding more variables...
