Description: Flexible backup tool for small to medium sized installations
 Flexbackup is a flexible backup tool that works well for small to medium
 sized tasks for which solutions like amanda are overkill.
 It features:
  * Easy configuration
  * Uses afio, dump, GNU tar, cpio, star, pax, lha, or zip archivers
  * Full and numbered levels of incremental backup (similar to "dump")
  * Compression and buffering options for all backup types
  * Handles remote filesystems with ssh/rsh; no special services required
  * Writes to tapes, on-disk archive files, or on-disk directory trees
  * Keeps a table of contents so you know what archives are on each tape
  * Extensive logging options
Tag: admin::backup, interface::commandline, made-of::lang:perl, role::sw:utility, works-with::archive

 flexbackup - Flexible backup tool for small to medium sized installations
Closes: 384184
 flexbackup (1.2.1-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * Use dpatch to track changes to upstream.
   * Update compat to 5.
   * Move lha (non-free) to Suggests:
   * 'mt' can come from cpio or mt-st packages.
   * Add upstream CREDITS.
   * Fix hyphens in .../man5/flexbackup.conf.5.
   * flexbackup.conf now supports backup operations without requiring
     'buffer', which is not necessary for backup to disk.
   * test_bufferprog: don't rely on 'tempfile' which may not be present
     on some remote systems.  Create and delete the /tmp subdirectory on
     remote systems during this test.
   * flexbackup log and working directories now writable by backup group.
     (Permissions similar to the amanda backup utility, needed override.)
   * Remove unused targets and commands in debian/rules
   * New Maintainer  (Closes: #384184).
