./sysutils/rdiff-backup, Remote incremental backup utility

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.2.8nb8, Package name: rdiff-backup-1.2.8nb8, Maintainer: snj

rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a network.
The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra
reverse diffs are stored in a special subdirectory of that target directory,
so you can still recover files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine
the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also
preserves subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid
ownership (if it is running as root), and modification times. Finally,
rdiff-backup can operate in a bandwidth efficient manner over a pipe, like
rsync. Thus you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive
up to a remote location, and only the differences will be transmitted.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.
