oramfs looks pretty cool and is similar to things I'm working on.


other yammer:

Regarding filesystems, I'm struggling to find a way to preserve data across
corrupt systems damaging it and harddrives that break frequently.  This is
very hard for me to solve.

This list still makes no sense to me, no pgp keys, to me people say things
that make little sense (spam filtering out of nowhere?).  We need to get
onto better channels.  I wonder what people are using for discourse with
more cryptographic integrity nowadays.

I proposed to the lsl project (used for neuroscience research) that they
encrypt and authenticate their biosignal streams.  I wasn't sure what
system to suggest and suggested hypercore because it offers some small
proof of creation after the fact  They were expecting TLS of course, which
I worry around because it doesn't say anything about archival integrity
after decryption.  Hypercore wasn't really a good suggestion because it is
written in nodejs and lsl is in c++ :-/

Seems go and rust are the future.  I looked up go.sum : dependencies,
although retrieved from github over the network (scary way to make an
ecosystem) are hashed via sha256 in a way that can be upgraded (reliable,
trustworthy).  Inspiring.  There are multiple facilities in the go
dependency system, for pulling from offline mirrors instead of github, but
they aren't that easy to find.  Haven't checked if the commit id of
dependencies is used in the hash, or the worktree checkout, or what.

Haven't checked rust's cargo to see what their approach is.  When picking a
language, I want to make sure there are ways to quickly check where data
corruption arises.  I always use submodules and subtrees for my
dependencies in older languages.

It's cool that go's approach pressures people to mirror github to dev
offline.  That could accomplish a lot in the world, although is likely a
little limited to things written in go.
