Based on what I'm seeing, it looks like the knife command is being provided by https://bldr.habitat.sh/#/pkgs/chef/automate-cs-nginx and it makes sense to add chef/knife-ec-backup and any other packages required to follow the Automate HA documentation for Chef Server included in that package's dependencies.

    I don't think that's what is happening, no. I think what's happening is that it's difficult to find and make work the copy of knife-ec available in an Automate HA deployment (as part of the automate-cs-nginx package), and that rather, we should include it as common tooling for doing backup/restore in an easy-to-discover and easily-upgradeable place, since it's likely to be necessary for this type of topology in any migration scenario
