· 2 min read

Hello every one, here is the weekly report for BeyondStorage, which ranges from 2021-06-15 to 2021-06-18.

New Proposals#

This week, we have the following proposal updates.

Re-support Initialization Via Connection String#

GSP-90 intends to add support for connection strings which allow user to NewStorager like:

  • s3://bucket_name/prefix?credential=hmac:xxxx:xxxx&endpoint=
  • fs:///tmp

This week we made huge progress and finally approved this GSP. The implementations could be tracked at Tracking issue for GSP-90: Re-support Initialization Via Connection String.

Add Restrictions In Storage Metadata#

GSP-97 intends to add restrictions in storage metadata. In this GSP, @JinnyYi proposes to refactor StorageMeta like we do on Object:

type StorageMeta struct {   location               string   Name                   string   WorkDir                string   copySizeMaximum        int64   fetchSizeMaximum       int64   moveSizeMaximum        int64   writeSizeMaximum       int64   appendNumberMaximum    int64   appendSizeMaximum      int64   appendTotalSizeMaximum int64   multipartNumberMaximum int64   multipartSizeMaximum   int64   multipartSizeMinimum   int64      // bit used as a bitmap for object value, 0 means not set, 1 means set    bit uint64   m   map[string]interface{}}

So users can get the storage's restrictions before really call the API.

This week we approved and merged this GSP. The implementations could be tracked at Tracking issue for GSP-97: Add Restrictions In Storage Metadata.

Add System Metadata In Storage Metadata#

GSP-111 is still under discussion.

We are facing the problem of naming, as discussed in this review. We start a new issue Idea: Find a new word to represent Service to resolve this problem.

New Ideas#

This week we camp up following new ideas.

Feature gates are confusing#

GSP-87 introduces a new concept about Features, but this concept is not clear enough which makes it hard to implement.

We tried to resolve this problem in issue Feature gates are confusing.

Add support for PostObject#

Add support for PostObject is used for tracking new ideas about PostObject support.

Update RFC format#

@xxchan found current RFC's format is hard to maintain, so he came up a new idea to update rfc format. We will get this into the proposal process sooner or later.

New Articles#

@xxchan start a new post Go-storage Source Code Reading: Code Generation to discuss the code generation logic in go-storage.

@JinnyYi added new internal post Object Lazy Stat in which talk about our object lazy stat logic.
