Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist


snap2 combines the convenience of full backups with the speed and backup
storage economy of incremental backups.

The snap2 package consists basically of a non-interactive shell script
(snap2engine) and an interactive GUI (snap2) for configuring and
optionally running the backup. Since this program is normally configured
and run (directly or via cron) by via snap2 GUI, no manual editing of
configuration files or running from the command line is needed.

snap2 does rotating 'shapshot' backups as well as 'mirror' type (single
copy) backups. When using the snapshot backup method, snap2 uses hard
links to copy identical files on the backup drive.  This greatly reduces
the disk space required on the backup drive, allowing several gigs of
backup 'snapshots' to fit on a one-gig USB flash drive.

In addition, when backing up a file that was modified since the last
backup, the rsync backend only needs to transmit the changed portions of
the file in order to create the new backup file. This saves bandwidth,
particularly important for backup to a remote host (via Internet).

snap2 is available at http://www.linuxbackups.org/download

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of snap2 back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting snap2, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 585665 ITP: snap2 -- A fast, easy-to-use rsync-based backup program with GUI
 owner 585665 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <585665@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
