I use manual update… and there are quite a few others of us…
i’m not adverse to automatic updates or such, but to ensure better uptime i prefer to be around when my software is being updated, so i can ensure that everything is running correctly before moving on.
this also allows me to update a few days later than most others, so i can check the forum get a better idea if an update is functioning as it’s suppose to.
initially without having used watchtower / storagenode updater at all, my idea is to add a button or something akin to that, which would trigger an update within a short time frame (mainly to ensure to many storagenodes doesn’t shut down at the same time, so there will be some sort of coordination)
a scheduled option was also suggested… tho the first real question seems to be how do we communicate with watchtower / storagenode updater
would be very practical in some cases if it was on the dashboard / SNOboard
but since not all use that and some post that online, that may not be a good solution, even tho it would work fine for me.
i’m not aware of what features are in watchtower, but something like ability to send emails should be fairly straight forward, that would be an very well adapted cross platform solution that is very non local and could then also work as a way to control the updates, so watchtower asks for permission over an email if it may or when it can update the storagenode.
i duno… so it seemed a bit rushed to create a feature vote on this yet, but i and others think’s it sounds very useful, so this is to get some mor perspective on what could work and how it would be used or if it would be useful…
so lets discuss… and when we got a proper feature idea we can branch it off into a feature request vote.
the emailing / emailed commands to watchtower could work, and “should” be pretty easy to implement, tho keep in mind i got next to no clue about how watchtower works… so very much guessing here…
