Integrating systemd-casync


#1

Hey,

are there any plans integrating systemd-casync? It’s promising and well designed CDN-friendly content adresable sync and it supports A/B provisioning:

It’s just a tool and protocol, not whole update system like coreos-update. So it is complementary to current coreos update mechanism I believe.

We’ve looked at casync in the past, though I haven’t kept up with recent developments. The current plan is to move away from the A/B partitioning scheme to an update system based on rpm-ostree.

FWIW there’s some commentary on casync in the rpm-ostree docs: https://ostree.readthedocs.io/en/latest/manual/related-projects/#casync
