Truckee is near Tahoe. This branch of Tahoe-LAFS includes changes which are not yet ready for inclusion upstream due to lack of review, tests, or other reasons.

This branch will not be rebased, and is expected to occasionally have the upstream Tahoe-LAFS master merged.

Upstream was last merged into Truckee in January 2016.

Current differences between Truckee and the Tahoe-LAFS upstream master which don't have open pull requests:

  • Support for multiple introducers (#68)
  • Support for introducerless operation (#467)
  • Connection hints for storage servers are listed on the welcome page, in addition to the resolved IP address. This is useful for troubleshooting grids that use Tor hidden services. There is no ticket for this, but the changes can be found in the show-locations branch.
  • patches form meskio and bertagaz to make the paths of various directories configurable (#2045)

These are the patches in truckee which do have open pull requests upstream:

  • None currently, but there should be some soon.

Patches that were in truckee but are now merged upstream:

  • tarcieri's redesigned directory listing page (pull request #32)
  • The list of storage servers on the WUI's welcome page includes a new "Space Available" column. (#648)
  • There is a new configuration option called peers.preferred which contains a list of storage server node IDs to move to the beginning of the server selection list. See configuration.rst for more information. (#467)
  • The "since" and "announced" columns have been replaced with more useful values (#1973)
