Yeah I backup the rdiff-backup-data directory offsite. Its important for
me to make sure the diffs are offsite as well. I only keep -3B backups
offsite of the nearline backup.
to exclude things, I have found the things like --exclude
/mnt/backups/rdiff/**/rdiff-backup-data to be useful

I could lay my backups out like this:
And then just rdiff-backup the whole /mnt/backups/rdiff directory
offsite, but I would want to exclude all the
<machinename>/rdiff-backup-data directories in the interests saving
space and time.
Do you know what exclude rule I would need? Exlclude rules make my
head hurt :(
