Default Snapshots and Nautilus support

Hi,

Opensolaris time slide integrates filesystem snapshots in a pretty neat
way with Nautilus. Is anyone from the desktop team looking into
writing/porting it based on btrfs?


Essentially, there is a nautilus extension in Python that can be easily
ported and a patch for adding a time slider and restore button. A stand
alone app takes care of setting some preferences.

None of us is currently working on that. But it sounds like a nice
project for someone who wants to dive in and work on something cool.

I had been trying to play with btrfs on rawhide some time back for
same functionality. At that moment (0.17) or even now
btrfs-progs(0.18-3) was bit unstable to work on.

Will give it a try to port the app and work on nautilus patch to
integrate this functionality.
