Siju George is making a Hammer volume’s snapshots available through Samba, with the results that some Windows-using developers get historical snapshots for free.

    Back in the day, I often wanted to take a Hammer to my Windows machines >_>

    That’s samba with its vfs module for volume copies (volume_copy2) and some additional hacks (enable wide links, disable unix extensions), providing “real” volume shadow copies to the samba client.

    With samba from their repository, naming can be adapted to dragonfly defaults (ie. to use snap-20100424-1338 instead of the @GMT-2010.04.24-13.38.00 layout mandated by the current samba release)
