I'm retiring Obnam, my backup program.

Well done. I love explicit EOL with rationale. An example for many more to follow.

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.

@joeyh I think the biggest difference to me is that Borg is push-only backups. One thing I thought was nice about Obnam (even though I never managed to migrate to it) was it also worked with pulling-via-ssh.
