FYI,  I bought deja-dup into the distribution and asked the Fedora
Desktop team to include it.  The primary (and really the only) upstream
developer, Michael Terry works for Canonical.  Duplicity has supported
Amazon S3 as a backup option forever and the developer was merely
exposing that in the GUI.  There is no commercial agreement anywhere in
this equation.  We simply filled in a gap in our desktop solution.
