Greg thanks for swift reply.

I've had same feeling that there's not too much happening with rdiff-backup whilst it is so good tool.

I'll have a look at projects you've mentioned.

Many thanks!

Are there plans to implement fuzzy match or similar algorithms to

In the last few years there have not been any updates, not even the
usual security and portability nits.

What I would like to suggest is:
in case of discovering new file, calculate checksum, check if the
checksum exists already in destination folder (under any subfolder):
a) if the file does exist in destination folder (different file
name/path) and the file name/path does not exist anymore in the
source, simply rename/move file
You may want to look at bup or attic, or similar tools.

If anyone is actually working on rdiff-backup, I'm sure  most readers of
this list would appreciate a "note from the maintainer" describing
