> Hi all,
> This summer, Swaty has work on database separation for similarity
> searches. The goal was to separate the fuzzy fingerprints storage from core
> DB to a dedicated DB. This will simplify the backup and prevent to overload
> the core DB with large data by image (around 500 bytes by fingerprints)
> The work is not completed as i know. All have be done in origin/gsoc17-db-sep
> branch from git repository.
> What's the status of this code exactly ? Can we continue with this
> implementation, or it will be better to re-start this work from scratch ?
> The DB separation is important for the future. Thank sin advance for your
> feedback.
> Best
