I build bacula packages with libcap2 support. There is some more
time required for test changes in packages before upload.

If you want, you can get packages for test here:

I think, this is possible with pipe plugin:

In fileset:
Plugin = "bpipe:/var/spool/bacula/all.txz:tar cJ /:cat

In this case you will can restore tar without root privileges and with
correct permissions in it, but lost ability to restore individual files.

I build bacual with more clean list of linked libraries, but i can do
not do this, because libcap2 in bacula-common dependencies. So,
thereare all bacula packages depend from libcap2 :)

Yes, i want to see 5.2.6+dfsg-4 in wheezy to and ask release managers
to unfreeze it.
