[ANNOUNCEMENT] fsvs 1.0 released

Message Hello people,

I'm proud to announce version 1.0 of the Fast Versioning System.

FSVS is a backup/archival-tool, which uses subversion backends for storage.
It stores the most needed meta-data, ie. owner, group, access mode, and
modification time.
So versioning of /etc (or the whole installation) is now easier, and a
retrieval can restore the access rights, too.

Due to the usage of subversion repositories as storage space all
committed versions of the files are available in case of hardware
data loss, virus infections, user problems etc.

FSVS runs currently only on linux.

The homepage is at http://fsvs.tigris.org/; there are mailing lists for users
and developers, a downloadable compressed tar file can be found in
As most of the documentation is in ASCII, I didn't do much to the
please use the repository browser at
http://fsvs.tigris.o​rg/source/browse/fsv​s/trunk/fsvs/doc or look into the
doc-directory in the released tar file.

If you're interested, give it a try - V1.0 is certainly feature frozen and
bug-complete (:-), and I'm looking forward to your feedback.
