Amazon Linux Triage Updates

by John Lukach


I needed a way to automate the updating and distribution of the bloom filter used by the project. The first step was reducing the GitHub repository size using the BFG Repo-Cleaner to remove the bloom filters.

Finally, I removed the likelihood test for now from the bundle to keep the volume down, allowing the application to check if a new version is available automatically.

Once the Rust programming language is more readily available on the default Amazon Linux operating system installation, I will switch over as ready for the future.
