Re: [Bacula-devel] Programming bounty for Consolidation project -- update


Although we do have a serious offer to complete the Consolidation project 
(Eric), he is unfortunately quite busy with other projects that he has 
already implemented.   Unfortunately, no one else offered help, so for the 
moment this project is currently on hold waiting for a programmer -- I'm very 

Nevertheless both Eric and I would like to see this implemented, and we will 
do our best to make sure it gets implemented as soon as possible.

Best regards,
