Hi Chris,

Why is this file generated and not already available in the parcel? On 
upgrading, you never run bbackupd-config, because that would overwrite 
your current config. So you're stuck with an old version of the notify 
script. Isn't it beter to put it in the parcel and maybe put the config 
parameters in bbackupd.conf?

And there is an error on the wiki, the backup-ok is missing there. I 
don't have a login so, I can't update the page
