+S3cmd is a command line tool for uploading, retrieving and managing data in
+Amazon S3. It is best suited for power users who don't fear command line. It is
+also ideal for scripts, automated backups triggered from cron, etc.
+S3cmd has an optional dependency for python-magic for mime-type indentification.
+Before s3cmd can be used it must first be set up. Run 's3cmd --configure' and
+enter in you access key and your secret key and follow the instructions. After
+this there will be a ~/.s3cfg file with your s3 credentials.
