[lug] Backing up file attributes
lists at danielwebb.us

What is the best way to create a mirror on a remote system where you don't
have root access, yet be able to recover file attributes like owner, group,
and permissions? rsync -avz or rdiff-backup is usually how I make mirrors,
but that obviously doesn't work if you don't have root.
I was originally thinking about using fakeroot, but it doesn't work at all on
(this is the example straight out of the man page, except it's supposed to say
"root", of course)
I filed a Debian bug report a couple of days ago, but you know how that goes.
So I need another solution. Maybe something that saves the attribues to a
file in each directory and then reverses that during recovery. Know of
anything simple like that so I don't have to write it myself?
