I didn't actually get what your tool is good for (I understand what it aims, but I do not understand the benefit it brings compared to just keeping my whole disk mirrored in a SVN repository). Can you explain what the benefit is?

Betreff: FSVS 1.0.5 released
FSVS 1.0.5 is released.
----- Excerpt from http://fsvs.tigris.org
FSVS stands for "Fast System VerSioning", "File System VerSioning" or
"Full System VerSioning". It aims to become a complete backup/restore tool
for all files in a directory tree or whole filesystems, with a subversion
repository as the backend.
You may think of it as some kind of tar or rsync with versioned storage.
----- Excerpt ends
The new release got some bugs fixed; it's notable points are
- testing framework extended with new tests.
You'll need rsync 2.6.7 to complete the tests successfull, though.
- update and commit now write MD5 checksums for blocks of variable size,
to accelerate checking for changed files (note: only applies if
size equal to expected value, but timestamp changed).
In the future I'd hope to send only changed data into the repository,
using that mechanism.
- export command added for easier recovery of files/directories.
- can optionally checksum *all* files, not only changed (virus checking)
- a small compatibility fix (subversion uses "link " for symlinks, fsvs
- a few small performance updates.
I know that I'm missing a 1.0.4 release, but that was already taken for
another snapshot (which wasn't released); it doesn't cause me headaches.
Do not hesitate to contact me for questions and problems.
