Lessfs development.


With the release of version 1.0.8 lessfs has become pretty stable and is used by many people over the globe. It is therefore becoming more important not to change the lessfs-1.0x code beyond patching the occasional bug. For this reason all new development will now be done on lessfs2. A CVS repository is available on sourceforge for those who would like to monitor development.


  1. Better compression / deduplication statistics.
  2. Snapshots with (hopefully) low performance impact.
  3. Per directory adjustable compression / deduplication enabling.
  4. Asynchronous replication.
  5. An improved cache layer.

    I found mailing list at sourceforge ( http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=lessfs-users ) but it seems it’s low traffic, and i can’t see any answer from upstream. Is upstream responsible?
