When will persistent storage happen?

Continuing the discussion from Changes to Hosting on Replit!:

Is there any ETA on this by chance? The deadline for deployments being “required” is fast approaching, if there’s nothing about it happening then most users won’t be able to use Deployments for their projects.

Take my ShareX template for example. It stores files in the Repl’s filesystem. Say that the user deploys the Repl, stores a few files in the Repl, then re-deploys it. All the user’s files are gone, and all links to it don’t work anymore.

Anyways yeah that’s all really I wanted to ask.
