I hadn't heard of this package before, but a quick googling turned up some
interesting info.  Alex, I'm just curious, do you find this to be a good
solution for network backup?  How does it compare to a Veritas Netbackup or
Legato Networker solution?  Does it support SCSI jukeboxes?  Thanks for the
info and for interesting me in this package:

"Bacula is a set of computer programs that permit you (or the system
administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data
across a network of computers of different kinds. In technical terms, it is
a network Client/Server based backup program. Bacula is relatively easy to
use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features
that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. Due to its
modular design, Bacula is scalable from small single computer systems to
systems consisting of hundreds of computers located over a large network."

If you are interested in bacula, I put updates to the bacula package in 
the testing area ( www.blastwave.org/testing ).  I added a bacula_client 
package, which is a client-only build.  See the README.CSW file for more 
details.  When these two packages are available from the mirrors, 
running `pkg-get -i bacula` will install bacula_client and then bacula.

To test, you can go one of two ways.
1) install bacula_client (assuming that you have CSWbacula installed 
2) install bacula_client and then bacula.

Comments welcome.
