Hi,

in the past I've been hacking on the Dirvish source code and made some 
attempts to improve it in different ways but I came to realize, that I won't be 
able to achieve my goals based on that codebase. My attempts are now available 
on GitHub [1] for archival.

So after Dirvish I've tried rsnapshot. It wasn't much fun.

Based on those experiences I decided to write my own backup "wrapper" around 
rsync. It is heavily based on my work with Dirvish and rsnapshot but based on 
a clean/fresh codebase.

The code has been in production use for some time now, but it is still 
considered alpha quality.

Since the approach used is exatly the same as with Dirvish there won't be any 
noticeable performance differences. The focus was on improved logging and 
monitoring capabilities.

If you are happy with Dirvish stay with it. But if you're missing something 
with Dirvish I invite you to check out RevoBackup at GitHub [2]. Still being 
in an early development stage is also an opportunity to include further 
features. If you have any ideas/wishes please use the Issue Tracker at GitHub 
or feel free to send me Patches/Pull Requests.
