Anyone up to develop an alternative hosting site for designs?
At least help in brainstorming the ideas and coming up with options (e.g. where to host the files and images)?

We’re still filling up the wiki, starting to brainstorm and plan and have a quick skaffolding to experiment with:

Someone suggested MediaGobil.

added it as one option for hosting to the brainstorming


and reading up about it…

Looks like MediaGoblin has a modular interface to add storage facilities. One already exists for OpenStack.

They seem to allow federated storage

pro: replicated (default: 3 copies)
con: servers require a filesystem with extended attributes switched on. Could do this if people contribute server-space directly or by running a ready made VM on servers.
