git-annex is now 8 years old, and has a good number of users. What general area do you think development should focus on now?

just general maintenance, keep it working and fix bugs (14%)


make it easier for nontechnical users (32%)


make it more suitable for collaboration inside larger groups/organizations (ie, game developers, scientists, archivists) (19%)


port it to more platforms (0%)


performance (17%)


reliability (3%)


improve the existing ports (5%)


improve documentation (4%)


get more of the functionality merged into vanilla git, to have at least rudimentary interactions with git-only users (0%)


reliability features (e.g. being able to query when a file was last fsck'd on any device, consistent hashing to shard across devices) (0%)


features that widen applicability to data storage problems that are not currently well-served (think outside the box, eg. system backups, media galleries, large file sharing via email) (0%)
