This patch includes 2908584: "Added enable/disable flags for monthly/weekly backups" (not by me) and also adds the following:
LATESTTIMESTAMP: Determines whether the names of the 'latest' backups include a date/time timestamp part. If set to no, the name of the database (or a generic 'daily', 'weekly' or 'monthly' name if SEPDIR=no) is used instead. You may want plain names if you are rsyncing the backup to elsewhere and something else is handling backup rotation (eg: BackupPC)
LATESTCOMPRESS: Determines whether the 'latest' backups should be compressed or not. In some cases large, uncompressed files transfer more quickly with
Tested with the original 2.5 release. Not tested with any other patches in place.
Use at your own risk etc.
