Summary: Backup program using hardlinks
rsnapshot is a filesystem snapshot utility for making backups of local
and remote systems. Using rsync and hard links, it is possible to keep
multiple, full backups instantly available. The disk space required is
just a little more than the space of one full backup, plus
incrementals. Depending on your configuration, it is quite possible to
set up in just a few minutes. Files can be restored by the users who
own them, without the root user getting involved. There are no tapes to
change, so once it's set up, you may never need to think about it






* Sun Aug 15 2021
  - Add fix-tests-path.patch
    By changing the access rights in Factory/TW for /home/ from
    0755 to 0555
    the tests fail.
    The tests are now copied to /tmp/ before execution to ensure a
    smooth run.

    * check for SIGPIPE, mainly in case cron fails when trying to mail

      called by cron on a system which does not have mail working).

    * if gnu_cp_al fails, test out a simple cp -al command before suggesting
      that the cp does not support -al.
    * When snapshot_root does not exist, check existence of parent directories.
    * include_conf `command` now strips backticks before execution (bug fix
      based on suggestion from David Osborn).
    * Ignore extraneous output from lvremove command.  (patch by Tim Connors)
    * Update current maintainer status in Authors section of man page.
