File Upload Redux

Registered by Gabriel Hurley on 2012-09-21

There are multiple places where it is highly desirable to allow users to upload large files, multiple files, etc., and that in all cases those files are then sent to some other service.

We need a coherent reusable solution that will enable these features, be easily configured for the particular service backend, and solve this problem once-and-for-all.

Whiteboard

Would something like this serve as starting point ? http://django-storages.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
Maybe we will need to add a swift backend later on.

This affect all django file attachment uploads. Is this the case or we only care about glance images for instance?
