I’ve received several patches for svnbackup.sh recently, and an offer to host an RPM version of the code. I decided it probably made sense to go ahead and open the project up to contributors, so I created a project on code.google.com.
Unfortunately, the name svnbackup was already taken, and svnbackup.sh wasn’t a valid project name. I’m linking from my site to the new project, though, so hopefully the minor name change won’t be too confusing.
Since I had the project on my local svn repository, and not in its own repo, importing the history into google’s svn repository was something of a pain. I’m glad there are only a few files in the source tree.
There’s a new release today, as well. Version 1.4 includes patches from Arjen Van Drie to fix unary
operator problems and an empty history file bug. See the downloads page for a tarball.
