    Very nice overview of Syncthing. Question. Have you have any problems with Syncthing servers not finding each other? You mention in the podcast that you’ve only used Syncthing for a few weeks. I used it a few months ago – sometime prior to the 0.14.0 – the last major release. On one of the Linux Unplugged episodes the host and the head of Ubuntu Mate stated that they also had a lot of problems with Syncthing servers not being able to find each other. So, I’m wondering if these problems have been fixed since the latest major release. I’ve had to go back to Bittorrent Sync, because it simply works. I’ve been thinking about trying Libre Vault, but as of yet there are no Android clients. Would love to hear your experience – whether or not you’ve had any connection problems.
