[Duplicity-announce] Version 0.5.11 Released

This is a bug-fix release, primarily to fix #25696 below, where the FTP
backend could create multi-nested backup directories in the presence of
errors.  In other words, ftp://address@hidden/backup, could create;
backup/backup/backup/backup/backup/... to a depth of --num-retries
(default 5).  Since all the files did not end up in the same directory,
this would be treated as a corrupted backup and cause other problems.

If this has occurred to you, the nested backup may be recovered by
moving the contents of all the nested directories back to the base
directory.  For example, for the default --num-retries of 5:

cd backup
mv backup/backup/backup/backup/* ./
mv backup/backup/backup/* ./
mv backup/backup/* ./
mv backup/* ./
rmdir backup/backup/backup/backup
rmdir backup/backup/backup
rmdir backup/backup
rmdir backup

Sorry for any problems this may have caused.
