Reduced activity this week (didn't work on the assistant after all), but several things got done:

Monday: Fixed fsck --fast --from remote to not fail when the remote didn't support fast copy mode. And dealt with an incompatibility in S3 bucket names; the old hS3 library supported upper-case bucket names but the new one needs them all in lower case.

Wednesday: Caught up on most recent backlog, made some improvements to error handling in import, and improved integration with KDE's file manager to work with newer versions.

Today: Made import --deduplicate/--clean-duplicates actively verify that enough copies of a file exist before deleting it. And, thinking about some options for batch mode access to git-annex plumbing, to speed up things that use it a lot.
