Hi Aigars, hi Aziz,
thanks for the update.
Since the revitalisation of sbackup is expected after the freezing of
Lenny, we have to solve the most important bugs of the current version
of sbackup. I do not know enough of python for helping on bug #427697
(the gid of the backups). If Aziz provides a patch, I can prepare a NMU
for this one, #479826 (using su-t-root-X as su wrapper) and #431936
(tranlations). I can also make the package non-native (as it has anyway
been suggested on this list for NMUs).
By the way, can somebody suggest an appropriate gid ?
Have a nice day,
