new rdiff-backup stable release?

Matt Taggart
When will there be a new rdiff-backup stable release? The 1.3 development
version seems to have some fixes not in 1.2. There are also a few problems
(some with fixes) in the distro bug trackers, it would be good to get those
fixed in upstream too.

Please keep this vital tool alive!

Thanks,

AFAIK, there is no active development going on.

Where are you seeing the 1.3 version?

I agree, though I do not see a bright future.

I see, but it is six years old and the repo:

http://svn.savannah.nongnu.org/viewvc/?root=rdiff-backup

show the last activity was five years ago. I would not trust that to be
relevant anymore.

Well the 1.2.8 release/svn are also that old as well. I just checked out
the r1-2 branch and trunk and here are the stats on the diff:

 CHANGELOG                       |   47 ++++-
 rdiff-backup.1                  |    9 +
 rdiff_backup/FilenameMapping.py |   12 -
 rdiff_backup/Globals.py         |    9 +
 rdiff_backup/Main.py            |   32 +++-
 rdiff_backup/Security.py        |    5
 rdiff_backup/Time.py            |   20 +-
 rdiff_backup/backup.py          |   12 +
 rdiff_backup/eas_acls.py        |   50 ++++--
 rdiff_backup/fs_abilities.py    |  315 +++++++++++++++++++++++-------------
----
 rdiff_backup/log.py             |   31 +++
 rdiff_backup/metadata.py        |   10 -
 rdiff_backup/rpath.py           |   83 +++++++++-
 rdiff_backup/selection.py       |    6
 rdiff_backup/statistics.py      |   17 +-
 rdiff_backup/win_acls.py        |   19 ++
 16 files changed, 469 insertions(+), 208 deletions(-)

Despite being dated, AFAICT the nongnu.org site and svn repo are still
canonical, at least I didn't find anything else searching.

Any of the maintainers still on the list want to comment?

Thanks,
