Description (last modified by warner)

The new APIs in #607 should be used by the frontend "tahoe backup" CLI command. This will make it run considerably faster (no RSA keypair generation for each directory, and fewer roundtrips between the CLI and the webapi sides).

It was always my intention for "tahoe backup" to create immutable directories, but because we didn't have them until very recently, I had to fake it by creating a regular mutable directory and then throwing away the writecap. Now that #607 is done, we can do it properly.

  • Summary changed from use mkdir-with-children in "tahoe cp -r" and "tahoe backup" to use mkdir-immutable in "tahoe backup"

Splitting this ticket into two. #836 contains the '"tahoe cp -r" should use mkdir-with-children' portion. This one is now just about "tahoe backup", and how it should use mkdir-immutable.
