What I’m trying to do and why

I’d like to mount a whole repository, which is possible with borgbackup.
If I understand correctly, borgmatic only allows mounting single archives, right ?

I didn’t even know a whole-repository mount was possible. Makes sense as a borgmatic feature.. Thanks for bringing it up!

Oh, and I’m especially interested in the -o versions mount option, please make it available when implementing. Thanks !

Borg’s -o versions is actually already available via borgmatic mount --options versions! Refer to the help for all currently implemented flags.

Got it, that’s helpful context! I was wondering when that option would be useful.

Released in borgmatic 1.4.18. The --archive flag to borgmatic mount is now optional! Enjoy, and thanks again for suggesting it.
