You have good timing.  rdiff-backup has been without a maintainer for
a while.  That changed a couple days ago.


fyi: I've been using it since 10 years or so ago.  It's a great tool
and I haven't really noticed a couple year gap without a maintainer.

The first task Edward (the new maintainer) seems to be chasing is
cleaning up the website.
