Re: [4diac-dev] Reworking Deployment/Download

Hi Alois,

i think override/override all and cancel/cancel all will be enough.
It may sound good to merge but there can be a lot goes wrong.

I would like to have a function to create and write the fboot in the runtime back to the file system, then i can remove my own upload tool.

Thanks for the great work!

Sunny greetings from Egypt
