Ben Escoto <address@hidden> described the package as follows:

Other License: 
Package: rdiff-backup
System name: rdiff-backup
Type: non-GNU

rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a network. The 
target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse 
diffs are stored in a special subdirectory of that target directory, so you can 
still recover files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best 
features of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also preserves 
subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid ownership (if it is 
running as root), and modification times. Finally, rdiff-backup can operate in 
a bandwidth efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use 
rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive up to a remote location, and 
only the differences will be transmitted.

It already exists and you can download the latest distribution (and read more 
information and documentation) at
