[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Backup - wishlist

Though I very appreciate it that the developers of Maemo recognised the
need for a backup application I think the implemented backup method is
only half baked, sorry.

The mechanism is nice and many post-installed application already use it
- i.e. to register your data and have it backed-up.

But have you ever made a backup before flashing a new image and then
restored the backup? Yes? What was missing?

The application manager (installer) does not backup anything at all!
It does not backup the repository list and it does not backup the list
of post-installed applications.
Why is that? It would be easy to do and save a lot of hassle to dig out
all the repos one once entered in a tedious process.

This should really be easy to fix, at least the backup of the repository

So please @Nokia: For the next release fix the application manager
backup. Thanks!
