I am write now writing a backup application: Keep, and I really want
to have it integrated into Dapper, so I am planning to release a
_stable_ version before the source freeze.

I developed it following the Ubuntu principe ("just work") and it is
currently near the usable state.

I encourage you to test it and give feedback in order to have it as
simple and efficient as possible.

Here is the homepage of the application:
Here is the page on kde apps:

It uses rdiff-backup (python script) as backend, which is based on
rsync, which garantuee a space efficient backup process.

I think that for current use, it may be better than KDar, which is
more complex and heavy.

Contact me for further details if you are interested.
