Update BTSync Plugin to 1.3.105
Please update this plugin; PBI is attached.
- BTSync 1.3.94 > 1.3.105 - Updated to latest version of BTSync
Upgrades may or may not work because I changed the user this service runs as from 'btsync' to 'sync'. The UID of said user didn't change (still 817) so file permissions shouldn't be an issue. I changed the username because I am working on another plugin for 'Syncthing' and these two plugins will both use the user/group='sync' and UID/GID=817.

Not sure how the plugin upgrade process permutes the password database of the jail it's installed in, so that's hard for me to say. Over to Sean to investigate both updating this and figuring out how upgrades will work.

I'd avoid a name like "sync", since it's too generic, too ripe for conflict, and, worst of all, is the name of a unix command.
how about 'syncuser', otherwise do you have a suggestion? I can recompile this and the syncthing plugin once we decide on something.
or I could just leave it as 'btsync'. it shouldn't make a difference cause outside of the jail the user is just a UID

Ok here's what I have thus far..
syncuser ~ a group named the same thing might look weird
_sync ~ almost like sync but not exactly so people don't get confused, I've seen some other ports use this
syncd ~ specifying the user runs a daemon that syncs stuff
syncer / syncy / syncie ~ these are all cute
I am leaning with 'syncd', what do you think?

Actually, please use the attached PBI.
I ended up still using the 'btsync' user, UID/GID=816. This is because this is how it was recommended when my port was reviewed for the FreeBSD ports tree (it got added a few days ago).
This PBI shouldn't cause any issues when users update because the ones using the 'syncer' user/group never hit the repos.

And there it is.
Hmm, I still only see 1.3.94 even after refreshing the repo.
I don't see 1.3.106 on this page > http://www.freenas.org/downloads/plugins/9/x64/
Also this file still mentions 1.3.94 > http://www.freenas.org/downloads/plugins/9/x64/pbi-meta/pbi-index-9.bz2
Might be an issue with my local mirror? Either way, thanks for the effort.
