HUBackup Main Development Branch In Launchpad

Today I've got into some storage problems in a server I'm using to host the current development branch for hubackup. Knowing the good work ddaa has put into improving launchpad's abilities in that respect, so quickly I set and in no time (using ddaa's instructions on his blog) I had my branch fully stored safely in here - now I know I'll never run out of space for commits!

If you want to play with the code and maybe even contribute your share to help us make Ubuntu a safer place for our data, you just need to install bzr, grab the code and start hacking. In other words:

$ sudo apt-get install bzr
$ mkdir hacking
$ cd hacking
$ bzr branch
$ cd hubackup--main

Today's surprise is a fresh new class to transparently create and handle backup meta data, also referred to as "backup config files". This config files will be used by the mime type recognition to run the restore program that will allow to either update a backup set, or restore it to the original location from which it was taken.
