DebOps scripts are distributed on PyPI, Python Package Index. They can be

secret/directory with other users without sharing the password, and using private GPG keys instead.
debopsscript will automatically decrypt the keyfile and use it to open an EncFS volume.
GnuPG is usually installed on Linux or MacOSX operating systems.
- Git is required to be installed for Debops to be used. Git is a version control system. If it is not already install, it can be usually be installed using your favourite package manager.
