mrb - Manage incremental data snapshots with make/rsync
||Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin)

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.
- Update the package index:
# sudo apt-get update
- Install mrb deb package:

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.
