Title: file sharing, Backup System like DropBox/Ubuntu One

openSUSE-11.3: Evaluation
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Frank Bechstein (currios)

File sharing Service like Ubuntu One. For Example it could be done with
Novells Ifolder Software, so the only thing that OpenSuse would need to
get it done would be a Server.

Packages nautilus-dropbox and dropbox-cli are in Contrib repository.
DropBox is superior solution to Ubuntu One. Also there is iFolder
available ...

#2: Luis Medinas (lmedinas) (2010-01-06 18:22:38)
I also agree with Pavol what you can request is for openSUSE or Novell
to sponsor a server for ifolder.

Just wondering out loud: would it make sense to partner with a company
(dropbox, spideroak, or any other one) here? I know that you can
already get some free space, but we could possibly have a better
integrated experience in some way...

Could be but I think novelle has a really good Software on the start
this topic, too. And of course it would be a Marketing feature for
OpenSuse also.

#3: Frank Bechstein (currios) (2010-01-10 02:40:59)
Right an IFolder Server for OpenSuse would be great!

What about modifying the iFolder client to work with
With UbuntuOne, the innovation is not the online storage, it is the
integration *using CouchDb?) to synchronizing Evolution contacts,
Firefox bookmarks and Tomboy notes so if set up right one could hop
between two or more configured computers and have their systems
automatically synch up with any changes.

So nobody has to invent the wheel twice :)

#8: Michael Löffler (michl19) (2010-05-12 12:28:06)
We are in conversation with spideroak. They now offer an openSUSE
package for download, Next step is to
get this into the non-OSS part of openSUSE Factory and to sign a
redistribution agreement between Spideraok and Novell. So this is work
in progress.

#9: Thomas Schmidt (digitaltomm) (2010-05-12 14:40:54) (reply to #8)
Why not use dropbox, which can integrate in gnome and kde and also has
a command line interface? This would bring us closer to the integration
that ubuntu one has.

+ sipmle, dropbox not even answered my request, spideroak did.
