Bug#519610: O: backup2l -- low-maintenance backup/restore tool for mountable media

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

The current maintainer of backup2l, Gundolf Kiefer <gundolfk@web.de>,
is apparently not active anymore.  Therefore, I orphan this package now.

Maintaining a package requires time and skills. Please only adopt this
package if you will have enough time and attention to work on it.

If you want to be the new maintainer, please see
http://www.debian.org/devel/wnpp/index.html#howto-o for detailed
instructions how to adopt a package properly.

Description: low-maintenance backup/restore tool for mountable media
 backup2l [backup-too-l] is a tool for autonomously generating, maintaining
 and restoring backups on a mountable file system (e. g. hard disk). In a
 default installation, backups are created regularly by a cron script.
 The main design goals are low maintenance effort, efficiency, transparency
 and robustness. All control files are stored together with the archives on
 the backup device, and their contents are mostly self-explaining. Hence, a
 user can - if necessary - browse the files and extract archives manually.
 backup2l features differential backups at multiple hierarchical levels.
 This allows to generate small incremental backups at short intervals while
 at the same time, the total number of archives only increases
 logarithmically with the number of backups since the last full backup.
 An open driver architecture allows to use virtually any archiving
 program as a backend. Built-in drivers support .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, or .afioz
 files. Further user-defined drivers can be added.
 An integrated split-and-collect function allows to comfortably transfer all
 or selected archives to a set of CDs or other removable media.
