Backup of Plugins and Theme

    Please implement a function to backup a whole project incl. plugins and themes. When something really crashes, I only got a part of my work saved.

    A backup of the theme editor would be great.

    If your host has cPanel (as mine does) you can simply go to backups (in cPanel) and download a full backup. I would imagine that other control panel applications like Plesk also support this, as well.

    This would be a great feature for newer users and users who do not already have an easy to use backup system in their control panel.

    This is not something for the WordPress core, as it is at file level. You should backup the files on the server periodically, I don't see why WordPress should be responsible for that.

    there is already software that does this; it's called Subversion. or git. or bazaar-ng; you get the idea...

    Since so many webhosts offer a control panel that provides the ability to backup the file structure of a site, I don't think this needs to be a core item.
