  Description     : Areca Backup - an Open Source personal backup solution

Hello. I use Areca for a while for my personal backup needs and I find it very
good. It would be very nice to have Areca as a Debian package.

Quote from the website:

It basically allows you to select a set of files / directories to back-up,
choose where and how (as a simple file copy, as a zip archive, ...) they will
be stored, and configure post-backup actions (like sending backup reports by
email or launching custom shell scripts).

It has been designed to :

  * Be as simple as possible to set up: No complex configuration files to edit
- Your backup configuration (which is stored as an XML file) can be edited with
Areca's graphical user interface.
  * Be as versatile as possible: Areca can use advanced backup modes (like
"delta backup") or simply produce a "basic" copy of your source files as a
standard directory or zip archive (readable by WinZip or other archivers).
  * Allow you to interact with your archives and the files they contain: Track
different versions of a specific file, browse your archives, recover or view
specific files, merge a set of archives, ...
