Comment(by zooko):

 This introductory article in arstechnica.com reminds me that I've had many
 conversations with people introducing them to Tahoe-LAFS in which I have
 to explain that the repair process is not automatic.  Anytime I have to
 repeatedly explain something to newcomers, this makes me think it ought to
 be changed so that the newcomers's assumptions are true.  In this case,
 that means making a scheduler which automatically kicks off a repair
 process and runs it in the background.

 (The comment by thraxil after the arstechnica.com article incorrectly
 states that this is currently done automatically.  In fact, the user has
 to learn a special command-line tool and run it themselves or configure it
 to run as a cron job or whatever.)
