New question #142032 on Simple Backup:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/142032

I have some suggestions that I think would further improve usability of Simple 
Backup. Since they're not bugs, I file them as questions here. Please inform me 
if I should split these into separate questions and/or bugs.

Finally, I really like the calendar view in the Restore window. But sometimes 
it is convenient to just get a list of all backups, with some additional 
information like diskspace used (and possibly total filesize included). (Now I 
ssh into my backup server, cd to backup directory and do 'ls' or 'du' or 
whatever.) So there should be buttons to switch between 'calendar' and 'list' 
views.

I wouldn't mind spending (some) time implementing these, but would need some 
pointers and help to get started.
