RFS: tartarus

Dear mentors,

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "tartarus".

* Package name    : tartarus
  Version         : 0.9.4-2
  Upstream Author : Stefan Tomanek <stefan.tomanek+tartarus@wertarbyte.de>
* URL             : http://wertarbyte.de/tartarus.shtml
* License         : GPLv3
  Section         : utils

It builds these binary packages:
tartarus   - script based backup system

The package appears to be lintian clean.

The upload would fix these bugs: 604447

My motivation for maintaining this package is:

I've written tartarus as a simple backup solution for my dedicated server.  It
uses parts of the unix toolshed that should be available even in the most basic
rescue system, making recovery easy in case things go wrong. By using Bash and
Perl, the program is easily extendable and offers various hooks that can be
used to modify its behaviour, while including features like LVM snapshots,
on-the-fly-uploading and compression/encryption out of the box. I created the
package to simplify the installation on now roughly > 1100 systems using this
program (http://wertarbyte.de/stats/tartarus-use.png) on a regular basis and I
would really like to this this included into Debian.

The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/tartarus
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable main contrib non-free
- dget http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/t/tartarus/tartarus_0.9.4-2.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

Kind regards
 Stefan Tomanek
