Create a BagIt archive
The Bash script make_bagit is part of Bash AVpres, released under a 3-Clause BSD License and provided “as is” without warranty or support of any kind. The program creates an archive of a folder, according to the BagIt File Packaging Format, as designed by the Library of Congress and standardised under RFC 8493. This can be achieved either by transforming a folder into a BagIt archive (this is faster) or by creating a new BagIt archive containing the folder (this is slower).
A short help message is embedded into the script:
