Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.3.1, Package name: amanda-3.3.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a
backup system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single
master backup server to back up multiple hosts to a single large capacity
tape or disk drive. Amanda uses native tools (such as GNUtar, dump) for
backup and can back up a large number of workstations running multiple
versions of Unix/Mac OS X/Linux/Windows.

           holdingdisk or interface

Changes in release 2.5.1p1

   * Remove contrib/sst.

Changes in release 2.5.0p1

* Add the 'amtape update' command.

Changes in release 2.5.0

* Communication security/authentication: Kerberos 4/5, OpenSSH
* Data security: Symmetric/Assymetric encrytion algorithms (aesutil
  and gpg encryption),  Encryption can be done on server or client,
  Custom encryption utilities can be used.
* Compression: Ability to add custom compression tools. This is a
  really useful feature especially since it can specified for a DLE.  You
  can use different compression algorithm for images, binaries, ascii files
  and so on.
* Dump images spanning multiple media volumes - Dump images are no
  longer restricted to a single media volume (tape or vtape).  Data restoration
  can be done using amrecover and amfetchdump commands.
* Auto tape labelling - This optional feature is good for disk backups.

Change in release 2.4.5

* new displayunit global option to select the unit use to display number
  k=kilo, m=mega, g=giga, t=tera.
* new amoverview -skipmissed option.

Change in release 2.4.5b1

* holding disk disk use timestamped directory.
* autoflush flush today's dump.
* new bumppercent global option, this should improve bumping criteria,
  the bumpsize is set to a fixed value which can be adequate for small
  and large disk.
* bumpsize, bumppercent, bumpdays and bumpmult can be in a dumptype.
* calcsize support include and exclude like gnutar.
* new 'estimate' dumptype option to select estimate type:
    CLIENT: estimate by the dumping program.
    CALCSIZE: estimate by the calcsize program, a lot faster but less acurate.
    SERVER: estimate based on statistic from previous run, take second but
            can be wrong on the estimate size.

Log message:
* If PLIST_SRC is explicitly set to an empty value in a package Makefile,
  then automatically generate a PLIST that says "${PKGNAME} has no files".

* If PLIST_SRC and GENERATE_PLIST are not set in a package Makefile,
  and no PLIST files exist, then fail during the package build with
  PKG_FAIL_REASON.

* Remove "intentionally empty" PLISTs again.

Now, the easy way to say that a package installs no files is to just
add the following to the package Makefile:

	PLIST_SRC=	# empty
   2007-10-25 19:50:03 by Johnny C. Lam | Files touched by this commit (85)
Log message:
Re-add "intentionally empty" PLISTs for meta-packages and other packages
that directly manipulate empty PLISTs.

Modify plist/plist.mk so that if the PLIST files are missing and no
GENERATE_PLIST is defined, then the package fails to build.
