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?
