Does anyone have any thoughts on whether to allow setting the backup schedule?
Currently Deja Dup allows the user to specify a number of days between
backups (UI shows settings like "daily", "weekly", "monthly").
I'm wondering if we shouldn't just drop the preference altogether and
always use "daily" backups.
My reasons being: why would a (target audience) user particularly care
how often the backup happens? They just want their data to be backed
up. This would be one less preference and would let us make more
optimizations in future, like instantaneous backups or some such.
If this happened, I might want to make each backup less "noisy" then
(less notifications about successful, normal operation backups).
