Hi, been a while since I posted an update here. I'm continuing to work hard on developing the git-annex assistant, and soon I will release the first beta version of it, which will be basically usable.
I've also started working on fulfilling the Kickstarter rewards. I received this sample of the USB key today. Getting it turned out to be a saga, you can read about the whole story in my blog: http://joeyh.name/blog/entry/UPS_farce/
I've sent out shipping information surveys to backers who will get the USB keys. Stickers are also coming soon, and the t-shirts will probably be a bit later.
As for my backers who signed up as beta testers or to influence the direction of the project, your less tangible rewards will kick in once the first beta release is out. I'll be using your feedback to prioritize features I add to the git-annex assistant, as its base becomes complete.
