New images and git digest #3
The changes include:
Some comments on the decisions.
Regarding the floppy, I haven’t seen it used in years, and modern hardware is very unlikely to have a floppy drive at all anyway. Also, given /config now holds all the volatile data including URL filtering rules and commit archive, a floppy is simply not enough for many setups. And, of course, given how unreliable floppies are, using a floppy for important data is a bad idea.
Later we will add support for /config on separate drive, as in general there are valid use cases for it. E.g. on semi-unattended routers with no IT personnel around it would be handy to make the config line-replaceable, so if something goes wrong (e.g. the router box dies) end users can be instructed to just swap USB sticks.
