## 30_basic_debian_tape.dpatch by  <"Kurt B. Kaiser" <kbk@shore.net>>
##
## All lines beginning with `## DP:' are a description of the patch.
## DP: Modify config to support basic Debian tape operations using tar.
## DP: Note that streaming can be greatly improved by using 'buffer'.
## DP: However, many will use disk backup these days instead of tape
## DP: and 'buffer' isn't required.
