  Description     : legacy bacula file daemon

 Bacula is a set of programs to manage backup, recovery, and
 verification of data across a network of computers of different kinds.
 The file daemon has to be installed on the machine to be backed
 up. It is responsible for providing the file attributes and data when
 requested by the Director, and also for the file system-dependent part
 of restoration.
 This package is intended for machines that are backed up from another
 machine by an older bacula-director (5.x). Once the bacula-director has
 been upgraded, this package should be replaced by the regular

Bacula directors 5.x and bacula file daemons 7.x aren't compatible, so
this package is intended for backup clients on sites where the
backup-server is running an older debian release than the client, or
don't want to use eventual backported newer bacula packages.

This is to address concerns raised in bugs #805306 and #806205.
