0.4 Item Cloud Summary
Item clouds are a new repository feature implemented in .4. We make use of them with sharing and in CPIA.
Work done in .4
- We added the notion of 'cloud' to the repository data model.
- We removed the notion of 'copy policy' from the data model, simplifying matters by using clouds instead.
- We added support for clouds in the parcel loader.
- Sharing made use of clouds.
Work to do in .5
- We'd like to take a look at simplifying clouds in .5.
- Instead of 'delete policy' in the repository, we'd like to use clouds instead.
