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

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Kenneth J. Pronovici" <pronovic@debian.org>

* Package name    : cedar-backup2
  Version         : 2.4.2

  Description     : Secure backup to CD-R and CD-RW media

   Cedar Backup is a Python package that supports secure backups of files
   on local and remote hosts to CD-R or CD-RW media.  Cedar Backup also
   includes extensions that understand how to back up MySQL databases and
   Subversion repositories, and it can be easily extended to support other
   data sources, as well.
   The package is focused around weekly backups to a single disc, with the
   expectation that the disc will be changed or overwritten at the
   beginning of each week.  If your hardware is new enough, Cedar Backup
   can write multisession discs, allowing you to add to a disc in a daily
   fashion.  Directories are backed up using tar and may be compressed
   using gzip or bzip2.

This is my own software.  I have been maintaining Debian packages in a
private repository for a while now (since before woody was released) and
I've been persuaded that I should include them officially in Debian for

I will be uploading the exact same package that is currently in my
private repository, so the changelog won't list a closed ITP bug number
or anything.
