I finally got around to setting up the CVS Repository on SourceForge.
I have added the v1.5.0 source (tag is v1_5_0) and also committed
some new features submitted by Xavier Nicollet and Toby Johnson.
(BTW, BackupPC now speaks French!).
If you really want to be on the leading (bleeding?) edge of development
you can fetch the current snapshot of the BackupPC source by doing this:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/backuppc co BackupPC
At any point the current CVS version might be broken. It's mainly
meant for fellow developers. There are some additional instructions
in CVS_README which you will find in the top-level directory.
You can also browse the revision history online by starting at
http://backuppc.sourceforge.net, selecting "code" and following
the CVS link near the bottom of the page.
