Changed name of daily_backup.sh to daily_checkpoint.sh
Changed name of weekly_backup.sh to recreate_db_checkpoint.sh
Updated crontabs with new names, and changed to run recreate_db_checkpoint
on the 1st Sat. of Jan. and July. For most companies, this is a better
practice than recreating weekly per discussion with Anton.
Remove solaris crontab since Solaris is pretty much dead, and we don't test on it.
Updated docs to reflect name changes, and did a little clean other other sections
while I was in there.
Updated copyright date to 2015
Updated shell scripts to require an instance parameter to eliminate the need
for calling p4master_run. Python and Perl still need it since you have to set the
environment for them to run in.
Incorporated comments from reviewers. Left the . instead of source as that seems
more common in the field and has the same functionality.
