I have been trying out duplicity [1] at work.  This does incremental
backups with optional encryption, which is great if you don't trust
the place you store your backups.

I would interested in a snapshot type backup system as well, something
like Time Drive [2] which looks like a copy of Apple's Time Machine.

Would this be a good theme for a hands on workshop ?
