Backup 12.10 Enhancements

Registered by Michael Terry on 2012-04-25

Rationale:
Déjà Dup Backup Tool is installed by default and the recommended backup solution for home users. Every cycle, it is helpful to discuss what changes Ubuntu wants to keep it up to date.

Goal:
Decide what we can do this cycle, what people can do to help, and feedback about both the current state and planned changes.

User Stories:

Anna installs Ubuntu and wants to keep her work documents safe. She knows she should make backups, but isn't exactly sure how to do that.

Bill uses Ubuntu but isn't familiar with what a backup is. His family photos are only stored in the default location, which is only stored on the local disk.

Carol's laptop got dropped in a lake. She bought a new laptop and wants to restore her data from her deja-dup backup that she put in Ubuntu One.

Test Plans:

1) Any new feature should add a script to deja-dup's test suite.

2) Make a full backup and restore using Ubuntu One.
