mrb is a single, self-documenting, executable makefile, which aims to make trivial the task of maintaining a set of compact, incremental, rsync mirrors of your important (and sometimes rapidly changing) data. It relies only on the time-hardened industry tools GNU make and rsync. Snapshots may be taken at any opportune interval. Multiple snapshot targets can be configured in a modular fashion, so fast changing data can be separated from static bulk data, with snapshots of each scheduled or triggered on demand, as may be appropriate for each.

    2006-05-09 - Ron Lee <> mrb (0.1) unstable; urgency=low * Yes, the world is full of 'simple' backup systems already. And the bts is simply full of old unfixed bugs that point out the errors in their purported simplicity. So here is yet another one, hopefully so simple that it can't possibly ever have (m)any bugs of its own... Hats off especially to Mike Rubel and jw for wanting the right things and stirring this particular broth until my job was simple.
