As a user of dirvish I can tell you that it really requires root privileges to
work, for example to store file ownership since it saves the backups with the
same ownership of the original file, and if you are backing up remote machines
it is recommended to have a central user database (NIS, LDAP, etc) to make sure
the correct ownership is assigned to the backup files.

I do not think dirvish was designed to be used by normal users. Dirvish
development as you say is dead, there is a experimental release for years, but I
packaged the stable release since that is what I use on my servers and as a
backup tool I do not recommend using the experimental version
