For the drop-box part there is also the git-annex_ frontend that 
has just been funded via kickstarter_.

I already use git-annex to manage data files on various devices, 
both connected and non-connected to the internet, and it 
works excellently, so I'm looking forward for the ability 
to recommend it to less technical friends.

.. _git-annex: http://git-annex.branchable.com/
.. _kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joeyh/git-annex-assistant-like-dropbox-but-with-your-own

Advantages include the fact that it is written in haskell instead 
of php, and that the author is a debian developer, so git-annex 
is already available in debian and the assistant will 
probably be quite soon after it's done.
