Why is there no Focal package?

I wanted to try bub today with the integrated Plasma backup tool Kup, sadly there is no package for 20.04 aka Focal? Is there an ETA?

wah, seriously, Python2? How old is that?

Exactly. What does the application do? Maybe we can suggest an alternative

Myriam Schweingruber (myriam) said : #6

Not really an alternative as Kup uses either Bup or rsync, so one of the options is unusable now due to Python2 being deprecated. I'll get in touch with the Kup team to see what they plan for the future

Can you help with this problem?
