Welcome to S3Sync.net
This is a community site for developers and users of the free and open source s3sync.rb and s3cmd.rb tools, which are interfaces to the Amazon S3 system.
S3SYNC DEVELOPMENT HAS RESUMED! (and moved)
Marc Spitzer has taken up the responsibility to code and update s3sync. Here is a link to the current repository:
STATUS OF THIS SITE
I have started using Tarsnap for my backups. It's a tool that can do much better than my best vision for s3sync ever was. The only thing it "lacks" by comparison is the ability to easily map a local tree to S3 paths for easy web serving from S3. But since personally I don't use that feature of s3sync anyway, the motivation for me to rewrite the tools has pretty much evaporated.
Due to spam, I turned off registration in the forum, too. If you need to contact me about s3sync, you can find my info in the README file below.
This site provides a free forum to ask questions, discuss features, and report bugs. Please use this new forum instead of the old S3 forum thread.
