TODO list for s3cmd project
===========================

- Before 1.0.0 (or asap after 1.0.0)
  - Make 'sync s3://bkt/some-filename local/other-filename' work
    (at the moment it'll always download).
  - Enable --exclude for [ls].
  - Allow change /tmp to somewhere else
  - With --guess-mime use 'magic' module if available.
  - Support --preserve for [put] and [get]. Update manpage.
  - Don't let --continue fail if the file is already fully downloaded.
  - Option --mime-type should set mime type with 'cp' and 'mv'.
    If possible --guess-mime-type should do as well.
  - Make upload throttling configurable.
  - Allow removing 'DefaultRootObject' from CloudFront distributions.
  - Get s3://bucket/non-existent creates empty local file 'non-existent'
  - Add 'geturl' command, both Unicode and urlencoded output.
  - Add a command for generating "Query String Authentication" URLs.
  - Support --acl-grant (together with --acl-public/private) for [put] and [sync]
  - Filter 's3cmd ls' output by --bucket-location=

- After 1.0.0
  - Sync must backup non-files as well. At least directories,
    symlinks and device nodes.
  - Speed up upload / download with multiple threads.
    (see http://blog.50projects.com/p/s3cmd-modifications.html)
  - Sync should be able to update metadata (UID, timstamps, etc)
    if only these change (i.e. same content, different metainfo).
  - If GPG fails error() and exit. If un-GPG fails save the
    file with .gpg extension.
  - Keep backup files remotely on put/sync-to if requested
    (move the old 'object' to e.g. 'object~' and only then upload
     the new one). Could be more advanced to keep, say, last 5
     copies, etc.
  - Memory consumption on very large upload sets is terribly high.
  - Implement per-bucket (or per-regexp?) default settings. For
    example regarding ACLs, encryption, etc.

- Implement GPG for sync
  (it's not that easy since it won't be easy to compare
   the encrypted-remote-object size with local file.
   either we can store the metadata in a dedicated file
   where we face a risk of inconsistencies, or we'll store
   the metadata encrypted in each object header where we'll
   have to do large number for object/HEAD requests. tough
   call).
  Or we can only compare local timestamps with remote object
  timestamps. If the local one is older we'll *assume* it
  hasn't been changed. But what to do about remote2local sync?

- Keep man page up to date and write some more documentation
  - Yeah, right ;-)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
