 Simplifying backups

Linux.com tells us about a product of the Google summer of code project that helps with backing up your system.

"The simple-backup-config tool allows users to choose either a simple backup scheme that performs incremental backups daily and full backups weekly, or to modify the default scheme with their own settings. Users list directories to backup in the Include tab, and select items to exclude in the Exclude tab. Exclusions can be based on directory (e.g., /var/cache), file type (sbackup excludes multimedia files by default), file size (10MB is the default upper limit), or regular expression."
