The debian package tracker refers to http://rdiff-backup.nongnu.org/
as the upstream home page, which lists 1.2.8 as current stable release
and 1.3.3, from 2009, as development/unstable version.

There is no bug report advising about a new project homepage or about
a new stable release in the Debian bug tracker system.

Generally, if a project changes its home page, it's a good idea to at
least have the old address point to the new one so that people pick up
the new developent. In case of rdiff-backup, either of this didn't

Marc, who stopped rdiff-backup after a new upstream version broke
backwards compatiblity to history and the proposed solution was to
throw away history and to start over in earnest
