I intend to create a backup facility for Debian systems. The advantage of
this set of programs will be that it will take advantage of your existing
Debian distribution set and avoid storing that information. It will back
up all files which have been modified since the package they are part of
was installed and any files which are not from an installed Debian package.
Full system restoration will require that the user install the Debian base
package and restore.deb (which will have the restore program and custom
data to describe your system). The restore program will automatically
re-install all Debian packages that were on the system, all modified
configuration files and all user files.
Someone please STOP ME NOW if this has been done or is in progress.
P.S. Mike D. please add this to the Debian Contributors list.
