What I’m trying to do and why
I just started using borgmatic (it’s fantastic!) so I may be missing something here, but isn’t a mount point always required in
borgmatic mount/umount? If that’s the case, I would suggest dropping the
--mount-point flag to simplify the syntax and make it more similar to
borg mount/umount (and also the traditional
For example, instead of
borgmatic mount --archive some-archive --mount-point /mnt/backups
it would become
borgmatic mount --archive some-archive /mnt/backups
Other notes / implementation ideas
I would also suggest dropping the
--archive flag, e.g.
borgmatic mount some-archive /mnt/backups
To mount all archives or the latest archive, there could be e.g. a
--all and a
--latest flag. Mounting all archives if
--archive is omitted doesn’t sound like a very good default behavior to me.
If this sounds good, I could post it under a separate issue. Just let me know.
borgmatic version: 1.5.9
