> KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files,
> whereby it uses an easy to use directory tree to select the things to back
> up.
> The program was designed to be very simple in its use so that it can be used
> by non-computer experts.
> It can do full- and incremental backups.
> The storage format is the well known TAR format, whereby the data is still
> stored in compressed format (bzip2 or gzip).
> The backup can be put onto a local directory (mounted device, etc.) but also
> on a remote URL (thanks to KDE KIO).
> I started development already a long time ago in 2006, based on Qt3(!).
> I released it on https://www.linux-apps.com/content/show.php?content=44998
> and it quickly became a much downloaded program.
> Over the years I always added new features when something I felt was
> missing. In the last year I finally managed to upgrade it to using KF5, and
> I feel it's time to integrate it more deeply with the KDE project. It has
> also a handbook and was already integrated with the translation team,
> thanks to Luigi Toscano and Burkhard Lück
> I think a good harbor for it will be kdeutils.
> It is already in playground at https://cgit.kde.org/kbackup.git

Quick notes:
 * You don't need the setTranslator call in main.cxx there's automagic for 

 * You should remove the kollix at aon.at in the about data and get a 
bugs.kde.org product

 * Seems there's some issues with i18n, after a quick backup i got
...finished slice /home/kdeunstable/kbackup/build/
-- Filtered Files: 0(I18N_ARGUMENT_MISSING)

 * What is the Medium: label and the percentage bar after it?

 * How do i get a non full backup? ( i guess it would be an incremental one? )
