  • etckeeper: A collection of tools to let /etc be stored in a git, mercurial, darcs, or bzr repository. It hooks into apt (and other package managers including yum and pacman-g2) to automatically commit changes made to /etc during package upgrades. It tracks file metadata that revison control systems do not normally support, but that is important for /etc, such as the permissions of /etc/shadow.
  • git-home-history: A tool based on Git that simplifies keeping track of changes you make in your home directory and provides an easy way to go back to earlier versions and see changes you made. Also includes a GTK+ interface.
  • bup: Highly efficient file backup system based on the git packfile format. Capable of doing incremental backups of virtual machine images, and backing up to a remote machine.
