As you know we've gone over my original NTFS shadow copy idea and you
have significantly revised it to be adding a snapshot framework to
KDE/dolphin. I think that is great.
The project will involve creating an extension for Dolphin that
supports the following features, depending on the snapshot manager
Mount, create and delete snapshots
View and revert changes in snapshots
The libvshadow library is implemented in C, and provides a command
line interface to work with. Snapper too, provides a command line
interface, and supports communication through D-Bus. The available
APIs can be called through a generalized framework, and thus, both of
these backends can be added as use-cases to the proposed extension..
One thing I note is that the proposed framework is going to provide
functionality that libvshadow can't fulfill. Assuming you still have
edit rights to the proposal, I suggest you explicitly say that the
libvshadow use-case provided will only support mount, browse, and file
copy options due to the limited functionality provided by libvshadow.
==> Other potential mentors / KDE team members
I'm not familiar with KDE / Dolphin code, so my potential mentorship
will be primarily restricted to the libvshadow use case
If would be great if others could review the proposal for technical
merit, as well as potentially becoming a mentor on the project.
