Anyone familiar w/ IPFS?

AIUI, It's an effort to create perpetual links for software:

found via: https://www.reddit.com/r/Reprap/comment ... _software/

Would it be worthwhile to use it for download links for the software on the wiki?

Given that it appears to require software to be downloaded in order to use it, I think it would just add to the confusion. If you want to try it, the links to use it should probably say "alternative download" or something similar.

Missed that requirement. Never mind then. Thanks for looking into it more deeply than I.
