To be honest, I haven't had much time to work on Box Backup recently.
There is a lot of stuff which has been contributed, including the
Win32 port and a vastly improved diffing algorithm. I think the next
release should wrap all this up, and then the one after will add the
lovely new features.
I am considering using a CVS server on Sourceforge, importing the
latest version, and then inviting the contributers to commit their
changes. I'm not sure what to do about style and quality issues though.
Then if there's enough interest, perhaps the features could be added
as a collaborative effort too?
