About this repository

We build course backups from Moodle courses, with thousands of backup files. When trying to mount the directory as a filesystem repository instance, it never ended.

Since we simply needed to pick up some file at a time, we thought on building a repository instance, based on server-side filesystem with searchable capabilities. It may be extensible to users if administrators want to, too.

To do so, we based this repository on the current filesystem repository from the Moodle core, and the ideas behind other searchable repositories.
