Project: Architecture

Been thinking for some time to lay out the architecture of the project.

I have taken to calling the project "PyFileSync" unless a better name comes along or my mentor disapproves of this name. It would consist of two components (for the moment):

This is the server component that would perform the file-serving/uploading operations

The server acts as a generic file server with the additional features of authentication, transfer verification, compression, file encryption, multipart sending.

PyFileServer is being developed as a WSGI application running over "paster", the default development webserver that comes with Paste.

This is the client component that will communicate with the server to perform file-uploading/downloading operations.

The client is responsible for the higher level management that results in the sync'ing of a file repository between the server and the client.
