You might want to mention bup in the "don't use git as a generic filesystem backup" section. Bup uses the Git repository format with enhancements which give it the ability to handle backups.

Great article. The format is a little sporadic though. It feels like it should be totally divided into two main parts: "DOs" and "DON'Ts", with "miscellaneous" sections at the end of each. This way "Don't Panic" would fall under the "DON'Ts" section. Then I would also assign verbs as names of each sub-section, for example "Back up" instead of "Backups". This will hopefully help clear up confusing titles like "Sausage Making" since it was hard for me to tell if it was a DO or a DON'T without re-reading it and actually the post-production movie analogy in that section made more sense to me.
