Manual copying GC

The append logs used as well as referenced values by CRDTs you are no longer interested in generate garbage. We don’t have an automatic garbage collection mechanism yet, but it is straightforward to start a second peer with a new store, sync it and then replace the old one with it. You can then safely remove the store of the old peer.

Future plans

We plan to implement an online mark-and-sweep GC similar to this one once sufficiently large applications require it. If you need it, please contact us in the gitter chat.
