./sysutils/bup, Highly efficient file backup system based on the git packfile format

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.27nb2, Package name: bup-0.27nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

bup is a program that backs things up. bup has a few advantages over other
backup software:

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
multiple versions.

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
gigabytes).

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.

Log message:
Update to 0.27:

This version primarily fixes bugs, but it includes a few new features,
and hopefully will provide a solid base for 0.28, which may finally
include rm/gc support.

Of note since 0.26:

  - Files can be restored sparsely via "restore --sparse".  See
    bup-sparse(1) for the details.  Given that this option is
    completely new and affects the data written, some
    caution/verification may be wise (i.e. there were bugs in some of
    the development revisions that could mangle the output).

  - Duplicity backups can be imported via the *experimental* command
    "bup import-duplicity".  Please exercise caution, and let us know
    if you have any trouble.

  - Tests can be run in parallel now via "make -j check".

As before, the metadata support is somewhat immature, but it seems to
be holding up fairly well.  Though we still need to add better support
for cross-filesystem-type save/restore (which can be too noisy), etc.
