changelog

AutoArchive is a simple utility written in Python designed to make backups easier. It uses tar for creating archives. The idea of the program is that every information needed for making a backup is in one file - the archive spec file. Path to this file is passed as a parameter to 'aa' command which reads informations from it and creates desired backup.
