tob-0.14-0 uploaded to master


After having left it unfinished for several months, I just brushed over the
tob sources. I made some small changes, mostly for FSSTND compliance.

I'd be glad to hear from anyone with a tape drive how it works for them. It
served me well for almost 18 months with my simple QIC-80 Connor M250QT and I
use it nightly from cron.

The original .tar.gz is huge because a binary of afio is include. We have an
afio package, which tob recommends. tar works as well, and I have no clue as
to cpio would work.

 tob: Small yet powerful program for tape oriented backups.
 -  tob is a simple yet configurable shell-script which, given a set of 
 -  `volume definitions', runs tar or afio based backups, either for use 
 -  with tape drives or floppy disks. You could also mount and unmount 
 -  partitions for backups in the pre- and postcommands. tob is a general
 -  driver for the making and maintaining of backups.  It makes full 
 -  backups, differential backups (of the files which were changed since 
 -  the last full backup), incremental backups (of files changed since all
 -  previous backups), lets you determine the size of the backup before 
 -  actually making it, maintain listings of made backups, make remote 
 -  backups and possibly more.
