s3boto overwrites files by default

Issue #212 new
Gordon NA created an issue

It was just brought to my attention we had files go missing because s3boto defaults to overwriting files. I am surprised that s3boto defaults to be destructive.

I noticed this feature was introduced a very long time ago in http://code.larlet.fr/django-storages/commits/5fa8705b0c913b9938ff7cc84f42379c4e838348 but I think it would be worth the backwards compatibility break to change the default to be non-destructive.

In any case, a nice warning about this "feature" would probably be a good idea.
