Hi Chris & Roy,
I'll agree that this very confusing. I spent a while trying to figure out
where the notify script came from when I did the boxbackup 0.11 package for
Gentoo, and finally punted on trying to upgrade it automatically. (The
package just prints a generic warning.)
Now that I know the answer, there are probably some things that could be
improved in the Gentoo package.
