Doing some stuff, working on another Linux Journal article, and stumbled across a project that looks pretty interesting: git-annex. Not sure how I’d use it yet, but it looks like it MIGHT work as a open-source Dropbox, without needing anything more complicated than git.
Definitely something I’m going to be hacking around with. I’d still probably maintain Dropbox as I have too many iOS devices that JustWork(TM) with Dropbox, but git-annex might be a great way to track files (and copies of files) that I don’t want to manage in Dropbox due to space concerns. (Movies, music, and other media, perhaps…)
