There are many services out there that emulate S3 storage. Those S3 storage prices are also quiet cheap to buy, hence it is very interesting to have S3 available to the CE version of Seafile.
With the S3 implementation to Seafile it is not possible to use those services, since it is hardcoded to use AWS regions.
Please make S3 connection data customizable. Example for options that should be available:
$ cat .s3cfg [default] access_key = REPLACE ME secret_key = REPLACE ME host_base = s3.cloud.provider.net host_bucket = %(bucket).s3.cloud.provider.net use_https = True check_ssl_certificate = True check_ssl_hostname = False
Please consider adding block storage support to the CE version. The free 3 user Pro Version cannot be used if one uses Seafile for family and friends with 20+ users purely for sharing files and does not require any other Pro feature. Also we provide considerable data to those technologies that help you guys to debug and improve Seafile furthermore.
Making ceph available to the CE version is also interesting.
If you have further questions please ask.
