Version control for file sharing

Version control for file sharing

Often I'll download things from file sharing networks and find errors in them. A music file will have erroneous metadata, for instance, or a document will have OCR errors. I'd love to fix the errors and re-upload to the benefit of everyone else who has a copy, but that wouldn't work because file sharing is always based on a hash of the file, not on a file name or other identifier, and the erroneous version of the file is the only one people will see, since it is already ubiquitous.
