rdiff-backup is a good one too.
It uses rsync behind the scene.

greatly simplify some the scripts related to rotating backups. Check out
the techniques and scripts in:
The main idea is that you can have an unlimited number of snapshot
backups using only about 2 times the size of the data that you want to
backup, i.e. it is O(1) in space, regardless of the number of previous
backups that you want to keep....
backups of my cvs and other dirs :)
I was recently talking to Arun, who has downloaded a distro from the
linuxfromscratch project. He had this idea about making a live r/w-cd
from linuxfromscratch, which we can load on any computer with a r/w cd,
finish our work, and then save the changes back to the r/w-cd. Probably
your scripts could be of good use in such a project also. Arun is into
mnf. sohpisticated testing tools, and probably both of you could team up
and do wonders. HTH :)
