Summary0000437: Kdenlive has to have a project backup system.
DescriptionI.e. it must save all history of changes made in project.
For instance, I spent a day to edit video, I push save button every 30 seconds. After a problem I want to load 2 minutes ago backup project.
It is very critical!!!

Did you see the undo history? This feature saves all actions and let undo/redo them.
There is also a "crash recovery/autobackup" feature (accessible via settings). This will help you recover the latest autobackup state before a crash.

Does these features fits your request?

Please take a look at some version control systems, as long as kdenlive does not have a backup system. SVK for example is a wrapper for subversion and also supports local repositories. You can easily set up a local repository with
$ svk mkdir //myRepo
and check it out with
$ svk co //myRepo
and then work in this directory, checking in as often as required. [^]
terminal -> svk help intro [^]

Couldn't we let kdenlive save the project e.g. each 5 minutes to a backup directory and allow to restore from there? Perhaps displaying the number of files and transitions in the project could then provide some information about the project status for the given time.
