22:40 pointfree possibly a dumb question but I will ask anyway: Is there a reason why darcsden needs its own ssh server? Darcsweb doesn't have its own ssh server. Is it only because the keys are stored in couchdb?
22:45 pointfree I think it could simplify things quite a lot if we just used ssh through darcs.
22:54 pointfree We'd need to sandbox it.
22:55 pointfree Metadata would need to be filesystem based (a good thing anyway)
23:01 pointfree that would also make it federated.
23:10 sm hi pointfree. I don't remember all the details, but patch-tag.com used external ssh and was pretty flaky
23:10 sm you have to solve the problem of keeping ssh server and user/repo state synced somehow
23:11 sm darcsweb doesn't serve multiple users
23:20 pointfree sm: It's good to learn from experiences. I had never used patch-tag.com (I think I was a git user back then)
23:22 pointfree I also have to think about whether it's worth my time to do this with pijul around the corner.
23:23 sm the other problem is limiting access to your server, the custom ssh server does this by design
23:23 sm and not having to create system-level user accounts, related
23:23 pointfree right
23:24 sm is pijul really "just around the corner" ?
23:25 sm the code isn't linked so I can't easily check activity
23:26 pointfree I don't know actually how long it will take to get feature parity with darcs. I have the impression that the authors do a lot behind the curtain.
23:27 pointfree Right now they are a working on a rust ssh server and gpg implementation for their pijul hosting.
23:29 pointfree (From what I see on their twitter account https://twitter.com/pijul_org )
23:34 sm last commit in the main repo was june 1
23:34 sm maybe they've switched to using pijul
23:43 pointfree pijul doesn't have a "log" or "changes" subcommand yet.
