Plus "bup" -- for the sake of completeness.

I quickly read through the story and as I got it borg and attic are
related while borg solved some security issue that attic has.

Obnam is a different approach that has a "well documented filesystem"
but can't do rolling checksums (whatever that is, there's a reference
about that though).

And bup is based on git.

P.S.: Thanks for sharing the link!
