Name        : duplicity
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.5.06
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.nongnu.org/duplicity/
Summary     : Encrypted bandwidth-efficient backup using rsync algorithm
Description :
Duplicity incrementally backs up files and directory by encrypting
tar-format volumes with GnuPG and uploading them to a remote (or
local) file server. In theory many protocols for connecting to a
file server could be supported; so far ssh/scp, local file access,
rsync, ftp, HSI, WebDAV and Amazon S3 have been written.

Because duplicity uses librsync, the incremental archives are space
efficient and only record the parts of files that have changed since
the last backup. Currently duplicity supports deleted files, full
unix permissions, directories, symbolic links, fifos, device files,
but not hard links.

Update Information:

- Fix to deprecation warnings about sha and md5 modules. Uses hashlib if
available, otherwise original module.  - Added loop to run-all-tests.sh to run
all tests against all supported versions of Python if available.  Looks for 2.3,
2.4, 2.5, 2.6.  - Noah Spurrier has given us permission to distribute pexpect.py
along with duplicity, so this will no longer be an install requirement.  - NcFTP
version 3.2.0 will not work with duplicity since we require the use of both -f
and -C options on ncftpput.  3.1.9, 3.2.1+ work fine. I put in error checks for
this situation in the FTP backend code.  - bug #25230: --include-globbing-
filelist only including first entry.  - bug #25239: Error during clean, wrong
case in duplcicity  - patch #6709: Report correct number of volumes when
restoring  - sr #106583: document the need to use the --force option  - bug
#25194: Duplicity 5.04 requires python-distutils-extra...  - patch #6678: Add
progress metering  - patch #6686: Add error codes for all fatal errors  - bug
#25090: Typos and trailing whitespace in duplicity manpage  - bug #24889: NCFTP
cannot deal with some FTP servers  - patch #6692: Print collection status in a
machine-readable way  - patch #6693: Some FatalError's don't have codes still  -
patch #6694: Log exceptions  - patch #6695: Log filenames  - patch #6696:
Consolidate get_delta_iter and get_delta_iter_w_sig  - patch #6697: Always log
at least one progress during dry run  - patch #6700: Make duplicity translatable
- patch #6701: Make current-list command machine-readable  - patch #6702: handle
unknown errnos in robust.py  - GPG was throwing "gpg: [don't know]: invalid
packet (ctb=14)" and apparently this is non-fatal.  There is a fix for this
being rolled into GPG 2.x. http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-
