comment rsync 3.1.0 is creating empty backup directories
Yes, a .deb package would be nice. Meanwhile, the above wget ... make install is much faster for me, even on half a dozen machines, than learning how to make a .deb package correctly. But I do hope that one will appear soon...

comment How to automatically start and shut down VirtualBox machines?
Tried this in Debian Jessie, but it didn't work. Created user and group, set ownership of all files (including /dev/vbox*). But when the service starts, it cannot find the VM, even though the name is right. Will use the normal init script after all.

comment Is there a unix command line tool that can analyze font files?

comment What is a better way to deal with server disconnects of sshfs mounts?
