I have some packaging for this - will probably need tweaking.

Please note I named it kup-backup to avoid confusion with kup -

Also would like to see it installed as part of a default Plasma install, if possible.

@clivejo kup (kernel) hasn't seen a release in 3 years so wouldn't be eligible for inclusion anyways. If people need it, they can install it themselves. If they are using ypkg to build it, they will find out soon enough that there's a name conflict and adjust accordingly. We cannot and should not base package naming decisions on something that doesn't exist in the repo at the time of Request.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
