[TEST] Updated: rdiff-backup-2.0.0-1

David Rothenberger
New upstream major version.

DESCRIPTION:
============
rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a
network. The target directory ends up a copy of the source
directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special
subdirectory of that target directory, so you can still recover
files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best features
of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also preserves
subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid
ownership, modification times, extended attributes, acls, and
resource forks. Also, rdiff-backup can operate in a bandwidth
efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use
rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive up to a remote
location, and only the differences will be transmitted. Finally,
rdiff-backup is easy to use and settings have sensical defaults.

QUESTIONS:
==========
If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
