=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ The closedness and reliance on the servers of Bittorrent Sync was one of my problems when I wrote a review on it (though you can jump through hoops to not rely on them): http://www.roushtech.net/2013/12/02/bittorrent-sync-decentralized-cloud-file-sharing/ When I have open source alternatives like OwnCloud (which rocks BTW), I'd want something just as open for decentralized file syncing. I'm glad to see a project being worked on (err, somewhat, activity seems a bit stagnant), I'll have to poke at the source code after work today. I'm interested in how they battle the various issues that Bittorrent uses trackers & relays for. May have to spin up some VMs and play.
