- I'm retiring Obnam, my backup program.Show all 10 replies
Borg seems like the closest backup program like obnam. The main difference is it uses per-client AES keys, rather than gpg keys. So a backup can't be easily made accessible by other gpg keys.
I suppose that encrypting its AES key to the gpg keys you want to be able to access the backups, and storing the encrypted AES key alongside the backup will get the same functionality.

- The Software Freedom Conservancy does important work and helps tons of free software projects function better. They need donations and you should give them a little money. It costs about as much as having the barista at you favourite coffeee franchise misspell your name.
Also, you get a t-shirt so you, too, can be stylish at the office.
Some hope of the green albatross taking off this year.

- I wrote the following recently about participating in Obnam development. It's still quite rough, but perhaps someone has suggestions?

which I wear with a little pride and some justification.
I'm now using my own distributed bug tracker to track bugs my own
backup software, both hosted on a git server I helped a bit with, and
all three tested by various automated testing tools I wrote. All this
software runs on an operating system I co-develop using a kernel I
helped get started.
Justified, but a little crazy.
