Meeting information is available via our notify list, a webcal/ical/vcalendar feed, google calendar, an RSS feed or via this website.

Group Status

The group is currently pretty inactive. There’s usually at least one person at Toad in the Hole on the first Tuesday of the month. They do special beer events on every Tuesday, so that’s pretty easy…

Reasons for inactivity:

  • The current board doesn’t have time and energy (or has chosen to devote more time elsewhere)
  • Nobody else has stepped up to run things
  • Low attendance at meetings. We had too much trouble getting enough people to show up to meetings.
  • We had too much trouble finding good speakers, often resorting to one of the group organizers speaking
  • We were reluctant to pursue outside speakers, due to low attendance (also this takes a lot of time and energy)

Unison is a file synchronization utility for UNIX and Windows that allows very easy file synchronization between two hosts (or with a slightly more complex config, more) over socket, IP, or tunneled over SSH. Supporting two way replication, Unison is ideal for situations where changes are often made to both systems that need to be synchronized.

This talk will cover general features and use cases of Unison, including a case study for using Unison as the core architecture for the files in a multi-server web cluster.
