Re: Bug#315808: ITP: cedar-backup2 -- Secure backup to CD-R and CD-RW media



First, this sounds like an interesting piece of software, and I'm happy
to see it packaged.

Why the 2 in package name? It is better to avoid embedded version
numbers (even the major number) in package names if at all possible.
(Instead, make the software upwards compatible.)

Why "secure"? The long description does not say anything that would
justify the adjective, so it sounds like advertising, which package
descriptions shouldn't be. Does the software encrypt the backups, for
example?
