Re: Roadmap?


Hi Guys,

great to see syncany back on track. I'm a silent follower since the 
"big bang".
Having a good understanding of programming, but NO expertise whatsover 
in what you try to do. However, afterseeing somekind of roadmap, I'm 
very happy to help when 0.2 comes out as a beta tester. Looking forward 
to it! Keep up the pace!


BTW: In the roadmap version 0.2 some points appear in the 
"High-Level-Scope" and "out of scope":
e.g. "Database and repository cleanup (endless versioning, ever-growing 
remote storage space)" I think there is a copy and paste error. The 
table looks more clean
