Description Tereza Cerna 2016-07-18 13:15:37 UTC
Description of problem:
   In manual page is written that BACKUP_URL should be specified when using 
   BACKUP=NETFS, not BACKUP=RSYNC. But it is required if only BACKUP=RSYNC 
   is used.

   Copy&paste from man page:
      When using BACKUP=NETFS you should provide the backup target location
      through the BACKUP_URL variable. Possible BACKUP_URL settings are:

   Current output:
      # rear -v mkbackup
      Relax-and-Recover 1.17.2 / Git
      Using log file: /var/log/rear/rear-rearclient.log
      ERROR: Missing BACKUP_URL=rsync://[USER@]HOST[:PORT][::]/PATH !
      Aborting due to an error, check /var/log/rear/rear-rearclient.log 
      for details

   Expected output:
      Change in man page.
