Why is restic called restic?


#1

Just curious. What does the name mean? Where does it come from?


#2

The github name generator :slight_smile:


#3

Really? I’ve always wondered this too…


#4

You’re kidding…
Really? That’d be a cool trivia.

Hm. Here we go. @formorer is right, the name was generated, I think by this generator: https://mrsharpoblunto.github.io/foswig.js/

The org on GitHub wasn’t taken yet, so I thought it’d be fine. The original code name (khepri) was unfortunately already taken…
