The latest milestone release main deployment deliverable is a single Bash script. If it is executed without any command line arguments, then it prints out its usage instructions.

How to get a copy of this Fossil-repository

In an ideal world this whole ~70GiB Fossil repository could be cloned, but in practice the cloning of this repository accesses the SQLite database of this Fossil repository's online instance and although the SQLite is able to hold huge volumes of data, it does not withstand the number of threads that get started by web spiders and cloners all at once. The temporary database locking probably/oftentimes/usually causes an error during the cloning and therefore the way to get a copy of this Fossil repository MIGHT BE to copy a slightly modified version of it from a file distribution site, where the password for avoiding bot induced traffic bills is FooBar9897 . If that password does not seem work, then a thing to try is to click on the password field with the mouse cursor and after copy-pasting the password to the password field, please click the OK-button with the mouse in stead of just hitting the Enter key. The main difference between the online version and the downloadable version is that the passwords at the downloadable version have been changed, so that hopefully it should not be possible to get the passwords of the online version by downloading the downloadable version. 

stblob-files are plain tar-files that have been renamed according to their secure hash, which can be verified by using the bash script like 

    silktorrent_packager_t1.bash verify ./1cbadace4778dffe058732401d1ccccff08eb2622b89ae13i_28a8577b12998514cc777428007d8ca36506f5ef9257828d39a44dead6f33fabh_02551303237s_1000v.stblob 

or by using the combined action of verifying the hash and unpacking the tar-file:

    silktorrent_packager_t1.bash unwrap ./1cbadace4778dffe058732401d1ccccff08eb2622b89ae13i_28a8577b12998514cc777428007d8ca36506f5ef9257828d39a44dead6f33fabh_02551303237s_1000v.stblob 
    #If the verification fails, the unpacking of the tar-file is skipped.

but please be aware that the unpacking of the tar-file does take the extra 70GiB of storage space.

Using the wiki of a Locally Stored Fossil-repository

The wiki at the locally stored Fossil-repository can be used by running the Fossil, a command-line program that includes a web server that serves the fossilrepository wiki page at some localhost:someport or public_IPaddress_of_the_machine:someport.

    # on localhost:
        fossil ui -port 2000 `pwd`/silktorrent.fossilrepository
    # on public IP address:
        fossil server -port 2000 `pwd`/silktorrent.fossilrepository

If this Repository were clonable, then ...

All of the development deliverables could be downloaded by cloning this Fossil repository. The cloning can take hours and it requires at least 140GiB of HDD space. If this repository were clonable, then the recommended way to anonymously clone the Silktorrent Fossil repository would be to run the following Bash line:

    mkdir -p ./tmp_; SQLITE_TMPDIR=`pwd`/tmp_ time nice -n18 fossil clone --unversioned  ./silktorrent.fossilrepository

If You are a Fossil repository administrator and Your username is martin_vahi and Your remote/central Fossil instance is running at

then the Bash line for cloning the the repository would be:

    mkdir -p `pwd`/tmp_; SQLITE_TMPDIR=`pwd`/tmp_ time nice -n18 fossil clone --unversioned --private --admin-user martin_vahi ./repository_storage.fossil 


I ( as the initial author of this wiki created this wiki to facilitate the enforcement of freedom of speech and freedom of thought trough technical means. For that purpose people must have free access to the technical knowledge that is required for both, using the technical means and for developing the technical means. The initial version of this wiki is partly my public set of notes that I have made during my own studies that are related to the Information Technology side of security. I as a software developer see security topics as a subset of reliability topics. That is to say, in my view security failures are just a subset of a lack of reliability.  As anything can be declared "illegal" by the supermafia or any other party, I won't comment the legal aspects of this wiki here further and leave the rest up to Yourself to figure out. If You are not one of the supermafia officials that works on repression projects, then thank You for reading this wiki.
