/bup, Highly efficient file backup system based on the git packfile format
0.25rc1nb3, Package name:
bup-0.25rc1nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
bup is a program that backs things up. bup has a few advantages over other
It uses a rolling checksum algorithm (similar to rsync) to split large files
into chunks. The most useful result of this is you can backup huge virtual
machine (VM) disk images, databases, and XML files incrementally, even though
they're typically all in one huge file, and not use tons of disk space for
It uses the packfile format from git (the open source version control system),
so you can access the stored data even if you don't like bup's user interface.
Unlike git, it writes packfiles directly (instead of having a separate garbage
collection/repacking stage) so it's fast even with gratuitously huge amounts of
data. bup's improved index formats also allow you to track far more filenames
than git (millions) and keep track of far more objects (hundreds or thousands of
Data is "automagically" shared between incremental backups without having to
know which backup is based on which other one - even if the backups are made
from two different computers that don't even know about each other. You just
tell bup to back stuff up, and it saves only the minimum amount of data needed.

Bump all packages for perl-5.18, that
a) refer 'perl' in their Makefile, or
b) have a directory name of p5-*, or
c) have any dependency on any p5-* package
Like last time, where this caused no complaints.

Edited DESCR in the case of:
File too long (should be no more than 24 lines).
Line too long (should be no more than 80 characters).
Trailing empty lines.
Trucated the long files as best as possible while preserving the most info
contained in them.

I hope that's all of them.

Update to 0.25rc1. Add py-readline dependency for better 'bup ftp' support.
This is the latest stable release, despite its name. Lots of bug fixes
compared to previous one, but no NEWS provided.

Depend on fuse bindings.
Now, "bup fuse dir", assuming ~/.bup is one's bup repository, will
create a fuse mount on dir, in which one can see the backups (with
lots of rought edges).
