Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

Definitely do:

  • Local file filestore: Remove pairtree (and OFS) and do something very simple


  1. Local file only. Allow for uploaders to GS / S3 in the background
    • Advantages: simpler, if local upload can do progress bars etc etc
    • Disadvantages: strain for web-app (upload a 2GB file what happens)
      • This is probably fixable ...
  2. Stick with how we are

New filestore without pairtree

Each uploaded file is located on disk at:




Need the uuid to avoid collisions.

Metadata: Store no metadata.
