|Brackup -- encrypted, over-the-net, multi-versioned backup
||[Mar. 19th, 2006|11:46 pm]
I've renamed wsbackup to "Brackup". dina suggested "ass that back up" or just "assthat", which we later evolved into "Back that NAS up" but it was getting complicated. So Brackup.
It's not done, but it's damn close. Here's svn (props to Artur for setting it up):
Here's my ~/.brackup.conf:
sammy:trunk $ cat ~/.brackup.conf
type = Filesystem
path = /raid/backup/brackup
path = /raid/bradfitz/proj/
chunk_size = 5m
gpg_recipient = 5E1B3EC5
chunk_size = 64MB
path = /raid/bradfitz/
ignore = ^\.thumbnails/
ignore = ^\.kde/share/thumbnails/
ignore = ^\.ee/minis/
ignore = ^build/
ignore = ^(gqview|nautilus)/thumbnails/You define backup sources and targets, then do:
$ ./brackup --from=proj --to=raidbackups
The "type" parameter on a [TARGET:...] is the subclass of Brackup::Target to use for storage.
The main backup routine is simple, see Brackup::Backup's 'backup' method.
I'll post again when it works. For now you'll probably want to stay away. Everything's subject to change, so please delay writing new Target subclasses.
yields so many more interesting branding possibilities, though.

Just curious. Are you using a separate key specifically for this purpose?

Yeah. But I never use gpg, so I just forgot that I already had a keypair, so I accidentally made another.
This is kind of interesting to me -- keep us (or at least my lazy ass) posted.

Artur told me that was in progress, so I waited. :-)
