As far as I can tell, this ebuild is empty...

It's a text file that just has '1042564373' in it. Could you please resubmit both of these as plaintext?

Also, that patch looks like a full C file rather than a diff - is this intentional?

hi all,
BackerUpper is still available but via the following link

In regards to the date when the bug was opened and now, and since the latest update on the website is in 2002, I am wondering it is relevant to put this in the portage since the dev stream seems to be stuck.

If yes, I can make the ebuild for
If no, can we close the bug?
