There is a fuse-fs for browsing rdiff-backup repositories [1].
Passing options to fuse is going to be enabled in the next release. With
allow_user set I should be able to mount my config backup as root, but
browse it as a user.

There's also a nice way to automatically exclude filesystems that do not
correspond to block devices listed in /dev. E.g. proc, tmpfs, but also

Haven't tried it yet, but this should work:
   rdiff-backup --exclude-filelist<(grep -v '\(^/dev/\|^rootfs\)' /proc/mounts 
| cut -d \  -f 2 | uniq) \
     <other options>

Best, Andreas

Yes I am aware of rdiff-backup-fs (but others may not be, so thanks for the reminder). It is the successor to archfs. I am waiting for it get beyond 1.0.0 too. I use rdiffweb (0.6.3) which works well.

Thanks for the tip re excluding filesystems.
