Hi Tejas,

Thanks for your reply.

Is there a quick way to bring the trash feature back? How much effort will
that take? And for the trash implementation, is this just simply mark the
file as deleted but still keep the data so people can recover the "deleted"
file easily by undelete it until some one actually clean the trash or
compact the database?

rm alias will be hard to maintain on the client side so
something embedded into the file system will be more preferable.

Ideally the system can keep revisions of the files too. Will gluster provide
this feature or are you aware of any system provide embedded revision

Thanks a lot in advance for my amateur questions.
