Thanks a lot. Sorry for not finding the relevant posting, but I have only
recently subscribed to the Coda list and was too lazy to browse the 1998

Does the "soft" cache limit mean that I can grab, say, an audio CD to
coda, provided there is enough free space on the cache partition,
regardless of the cache size? What about reading from that file
afterwards? (My greatest concern about Coda on my machine at home is the
possibility of copying CDs etc.).

Another question is: is there a plan to get hard quotas working? This
would be paramount for a potential application in our cluster.
