Re: [Bacula-devel] exclude files by touching special file on client


Yes, I remember this patch quite well, because (amazingly enough) I just 
finished the first cut of the documentation (a bit crude at the moment) for 
this feature, and it will be posted to the web site in a few minutes in the 
New Features chapter of the development manual.  The New Features chapter is 
near the beginning of the Bacula Concepts document.

Yes, the code is integrated into the trunk svn.  I no longer have the original 
patch, so if you want it, you will need to look through the developer's email 
list for the original email.  In fact, if I remember right, the patch was for 
the trunk.  At this time, we are not planning to back port it to 2.4.x since 
it requires a change of the protocol between the Director and the Client.

You are, of course, welcome to try the trunk code, but it is not yet 
production ready.  However, within the next few weeks (once we have at least 
some minimal documentation), we are planning to release a beta version of 
this code (version 2.5.x) which appears to be quite stable.
