Bug#983146: sponsorship-requests: Backup next generation (bung)

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

bung has been developed over eight years as a campus backup utility, running
on Debian and a few Ubuntu systems.  It is known to be used on more than 100 

Documentation includes man pages and, available from
user and programmer guides

Selected text from that page follows

bung is a set of wrapper scripts for several backup utilities:

* OpenLDAP (slapcat and tar)
* mysqldump
* pgdump
* rsync

bung also has:

* A "sysinfo" facility to generate system information reports
* Templated backups allowing custom backup commands.  Example templates are 
  provided for Cisco switches and MikroTik routers

bung features:

* Automated backup to hotplug devices when they are plugged in with on-screen
  notifications to both character terminals and X displays
* Backup to remote file systems via ssh 
* Custom commands (hooks) to run before and after the backup itself
* File system hierarchy standard (FHS) compliant installation under /opt. For 
  cron jobs, documentation, the logcheck filter file and man pages, symlinks
  are created in the conventional places with targets under /opt. Fori
  convenience, /etc/opt/bung and /var/log/bung are created for configuration
  and logs
* GPLv2
* Logging designed to ease production support
* LVM snapshots
* man pages
* Mounting and unmounting local file systems
* Remote ssh command validation
