 - Revised Kjetil's improvement for setting $HOME

128. By Lenz Grimmer

Applied Patch provided by Kjetil Torgrim Homme:

 * make sure $PATH includes sbin
 * make sure $HOME is set (not always the case when launched
   (indirectly) from init, in my case, from Bacula)
 * count error messages logged, and never exit with status 0 if
 * move around cleanup for backuptype=none. this means you can do
   "mylvmbackup --backuptype=none --keep_mount" to take a snapshot,
   and "mylvmbackup --backuptype=none" to release it. The
   shuffling is necessary to handle the case where mylvmbackup dies
 * Fixed simple typo for $pidfile
 * cleanup handles the case where the snapshot was created and
   mounted in a different run
 * fix a potential endless loop if the logerr hook contains errors.

 - Updated README file: fixed link to the mailing list

126. By Lenz Grimmer

 - BUG#593220: Fixed the compressarg option for cat (removed the comment)

125. By Lenz Grimmer

 - Removed innodb_file_per_table from the list of options that might
   cause trouble when performing a backup in the manual page. The
   value of this option does not matter for the recovery instance.

124. By Lenz Grimmer

- Moved the new rsnaprsyncargs option into the correct subroutine (thanks to Ben Bonnell for spotting this)
 - Added the variable to the sample configuration file, updated the man page, added Ben to the CREDITS
 - Removed a confusing double negation ("unless ne" -> "if eq") from the check for a non-empty prefix.

123. By Lenz Grimmer

- Applied patch contributed by Ben Bonnel to add a new configuration option "rsnaprsyncarg"
   that allows one to pass special options to the rsync process when using the rsnap backend.
 - This is work in progress - the documentation and sample configuration file need to be updated

122. By Lenz Grimmer

 - Remove the misleading rsnaparg documentation _again_

121. By Lenz Grimmer

- Man page update: explained that it's possible to pass arguments to
   the rsync process used by rsnap by including them in the rsnaparg
   configuration option, separated by "--"

120. By Lenz Grimmer

 - Revert the previous documentation change - we need to add another
   configuration option in order to get this right (rsnap expects the
   rsync arguments to be provided _after_ every other option)
