 Reporter:  warner                |           Owner:  somebody 
     Type:  task                  |          Status:  new      
 Priority:  minor                 |       Milestone:  undecided
Component:  code                  |         Version:  0.7.0    
 Keywords:  mutable newcaps docs  |   Launchpad_bug:           
Changes (by davidsarah):

  * keywords:  mutable newcaps => mutable newcaps docs
  * owner:  => somebody
  * component:  code-mutable => code


 The immutable terminology needs clearing up as well. For example, CHKs are
 not really content-hash-keys: Tahoe uses "CHK" to refer to caps for both
 convergent and non-convergent immutable files (and directories when #607
 is done); also, convergent encryption uses a secret to avoid guessing
 attacks, which is sufficiently different from Freenet CHKs that it should
 be called something else.
