My bad. sorry.

The original source by Guido Fiala has gone away, not on archive.org, either.
<http://www.s.netic.de/gfiala/rsbep.html> [dead link]

Man Page [ubuntu].
Best description I’ve found of what the code is trying to do. 

Page + source download link I first found.

Debian Squeeze dvbackup page. rsbep is gone from newer versions. No upstream?

Ubuntu dvbackup package.
Source page



The Ubuntu source tar file is identical to Debian Squeeze:

steve$ md5sum ../dvbackup_0.0.4rj1.orig.tar ../dvbackup_0.0.4rj1.orig-2.tar
