REOBack development has been stagnant for almost 5 years. Andy Swanner, a Linux System Administrator (and a coding monkey :-) ) volunteered to take over administration, and development of the project as of 11/13/2006. He is currently working on implementing the items in the TODO file and more. If you have any feature requests, bug fixes, or want to contribute to this project, please contact him directly. --Randy
REOBack users, development is currently on-hold until I can get my life back :) I have been been busy the past few months with school work and had no time at all to further develop REOBack. As a matter of fact, my co-developer, Griswold, has also been busy with his Graduate school work. However, that doesn't mean REOBack is dead. The list of TODOs is growing and we plan to implement them someday. Someday, just don't know when...
This is basically a response to the numerous feature/bug reports from users like you!
Keep those feedbacks coming. :)

We are in the process of packaging the latest release of REOBACK, Release 3. This release is a response to REOBack fans out there that ran into some snags with the previous release. The fixes and enhancements are too much to list here. Just make sure to check-out the CHANGES file. Say Thanks to Richard, for working hard last week to implement these changes.
Although REOBack has been developed months ago (and been used since), this is the first public release. It is available via TAR/GZ files and RPM package.
REOBack Backup Solution (pronounced "Ray-o- back") is a simple backup solution designed for Linux users and system administrators. It is designed to be simple to set up, and easy to use. It is great as a quick solution for those who procrastinate about backups. It supports automatic full/incremental backups of files you define, remote backups via NFS or FTP, as well as auto deletion of old backups.
