a week ago, I posted following issue on GitHub:
“Feature request (qvm-volume): Pin volume revisions”
, formulated in polite manner. It even got likes. But GitHub has decided to delete the account including posts after some days, despite the fact it already has been clear, I am not a bot or other treat.
Main reason (I guess) is, that a mail alias service has been used for registration. Or something else Microsoft does not like about privacy-aware people.
This case makes me question in general, if GitHub is the right place for Qubes OS. But being aware, there is only a small team, that’s probably the price we all need to take for a maintaince-free issue tracker (?).
Anyway, the feature request is attached down under again for discussion, as I still think, this would be an awesome addition to
Feature request (qvm-volume): Pin volume revisions
In my optinion
qvm-volumeis a totally underrated tool for quick qube backup and restore - it’s fantastic! Unfortunately it is very easy to accidently overwrite volume revisions that you want to keep as stable backup.
And here’s my request: Extend
qvm-volumeto pro pin certain revisions, so they don’t get overwritten, when starting the qube multiple times.
Command 'pin': usage: qvm-volume pin [--verbose] [--quiet] [--help] VM:VOLUME [REVISION]
How much effort would be required to implement this feature on top of status quo? Is somehow already possible?
Thank you very much.
