Absolutely. I am, however, finding the documentation difficult to understand.
For example, this page
Seems to be incomplete. Or at least, it doesn’t seem to describe what
camput actually does.
In my investigation, camput appears to POST the content addressable
blob then a moment later POST a blob of JSON that is apparently the
metadata for that blob. However, the metadata post is not, in any way
that I can see, distinguished as a metadata blob. And despite being
clearly a junk of JSON, it’s posted with a content-type of
application/octet-stream, so it’s inappropriate for the server to
attempt to parse it.

Thanks. Absent some documentation or explanation for what the protocol
is actually doing, I’m not sure how much more progress I can make.
