Maybe some of the stuff could prove useful for someone who had the same situation as me (very little budget to buy costly NAS filers, availability of simple hardware, etc). So with this thoughts, I am attempting my first big contribution to open source. I am not sure how one releases code. But I have opened a project ca…
