I am interested in manipulating the “ipfs files” “root” CID. Where is it?. I haven’t found any reference in “.ipfs/config”.
I want to be able to change the “root” CID to point to an arbitrary IPFS tree and being able to manipulate it (copy on write, of course) using regular “ipfs files”.
Would be nice to understand the interaction between “ipfs files” and pinned files.
Case at point:
If I mount “ipns” with “ipfs mount”, I can do “cd /ipns/local” and then WRITE there!!!. Cool although behaviour is erratic and not entirely trustworthy. Of course, modifying content there creates new CIDs, and it is quite a challenge to learn about them. Eventually I discovered that “ipfs resolve /ipns/MY_NODE” would learn about the new “root”, but “ipfs files” didn’t change.
