With that configuration, you will have a total of 23 snapshots at any
point in time: yesterday, 2 days ago, ..., 7 days ago; 2 weeks ago, 3
weeks ago, 4 weeks ago; 2 months ago, 3 months ago, ..., 12 months
ago.  It sounds like what you want is not this, but a snapshot from
every day since a year ago.  If so, use one interval:

daily	365

If you have further rsnapshot questions, you might have more luck on
the rsnapshot-discuss list:
