Call for review: Borg Backup (crypto & python)

Hi all,

Borg Backup, which is also part of the Fedora repository, is a widespread open source incremental backup tool with authenticated encryption. Quite sure many of you know & use it.

The crypto was completely redesigned for the upcoming version 1.3. Therefore, new crypto design and new code.

Thomas, the major maintainer of Borg, asked for some review of the new crypto. Yet, not much has happened so far.

If you have some experience with crypto and/or python, feel free to verify the new approach, and leave a comment so that Thomas and other users can see to what extent / how much review has taken place:

I will also put this in the devel mailing list.
