Hi! I'm actively monitoring patches and making sure that the Zmanda
release is up to date with the latest patches.

Please see http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/faq/roadMap.html . FTP has
since been supported in the Zmanda edition of BackupPC, and we are
planning on integrating much of our code back into the Sourceforge

Craig probably is taking note of all relevant changes and saving them
for a later release.

For the most part, Craig has been the sole developer for BackupPC for
its history, and he only uses the CVS repository to upload new
versions. Active development on BackupPC does not happen on the CVS
server, and I use a private git repository for my work.
