Questions - 2014 Filecoin Paper and related IPFS

From @MaxEntropyy on Tue Oct 27 2015 06:54:27 GMT+0000 (UTC)

Hello…

I have recently read the 2014 Filecoin paper and I understand from the IPFS website that the Filecoin release will follow the V1.0 release of IPFS. I am considering the use of IPFS and possibly Filecoin in a telco communications environment for a modified type of messaging; and for high latency network file stores.

Several questions come to mind…

Questions:

Q1: is there an implementation of the Filecoin system?

Q2: if so, then have there been any performance analysis tests run that you can publish for file size boundary cases?

Q3: I am interested in Proof of Retrievability Challenges… Is there a discussion of the different cases to be considered?

Q4: I have looked for an implementation of the Gateway.ipfs.io executable and I don’t believe it is at the IPFS Github repository. Did I miss it?

If there is a more appropriate place to ask these questions please direct me to that location.

With kind regards,
jds

@MaxEntropyy Good questions. Sorry for the delay.

Q1/2. Not yet.
Q3. I think you might want to check github.com/ipfs/specs. There might be an answer in there. I’m personally not sure, at the moment
Q4. Yep: it is in go-ipfs, the current implementation.

This is the right place, but we have not been the most timely. IRC is always faster.
