Default Main Inclusion Report for Bacula

Hello,

For the server package review specification
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ServerPackageReview) we evaluated the Bacula
backup solution. However,Bacula was rejected due to a feature in
Bacula which exposed clear text passwords through the command line.
This will not be resolved upstream in Debian.

If people have an alternative that they would like to suggest please do so.

Regards
Chuck

Orginally, my proposal was to include Amanda. We switched to Bacula
during UDS as it seemed more feature rich and popular, AFAIR. Shall we
give a shot at it? Do you see something better to do server backup in
the OSS space?

With all due respect, isn't this a problem if and only if default and less secure (or bad) configurations are used and/or the database server powering Bacula is a shared system with non-trusted users?

We already have BackupPC in main. I do not know how well it fit the
requirements, as it does not backup to tape (backup to disk only), tough.
