Backup rclone.conf on github

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

No issue, just a best practice question. Is it considered 'safe' to backup your encrypted rclone.conf in a github repo?


What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.53.3-DEV

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

macOS 11.0.1

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

Paste command here

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Paste config here

A log from the command with the -vv flag

Paste  log here

at the very least make sure to
and keep this in mind
Rclone 1.53.3 release

and it depends on how you locked down your github account.

storing a file with credentials in it in github is generally considered a real bad idea .

If you want to do that, I'd use a private repo or even a password manager or something like that. Having things on a public repo usually means mistakes happen and you put a key or something. I have made a number of those mistakes on my own repo over the years and someone usually catches it for me...
