I just realized we could do this, but if it were created during installation, I’d found it long ago!

Why not creating it by default?

Probably no good reason.. My guess is that it’s historical.. generate-borgmatic-config was written before the borgmatic.d feature existed.

Good idea!

Just my two cents, what is the purpose of having both /etc/borgmatic and /etc/borgmatic.d ? Wouldn’t it be simpler to completely remove /etc/borgmatic and just keep /etc/borgmatic.d ?

While you’re entirely correct that /etc/borgmatic.d/ could handle both cases, /etc/borgmatic/ is more for the “common case” of just having a single config file. Slightly nicer user experience, I guess.

Also, the code that supports both /etc/borgmatic/ and /etc/borgmatic.d/ has to be there anyway, since the user can provide multiple custom config file paths on the command-line with the --config flag.

I decided not to do this as written, because there isn’t a clean or universal way to run arbitrary commands (like making a directory) when borgmatic gets installed by pip or the system package manager. Instead, I opted to put this how-to guide mentioning /etc/borgmatic.d/ prominently on the borgmatic home page: https://torsion.org/borgmatic/docs/how-to/make-per-application-backups/ .. I hope that works!
