|Files need storage and not every star needs wandering|
As far as polaris is concerned, since you have user administration working they should have SFTP/SCP already. You'll need to make the shares: everything group-writable by group "users", except shuttle which should be world writable. They were all in /data/<sharename>. The other protocols on polaris were HTTP, Webdav (both lighttpd), FTP (vsftpd), NFS and SMB (samba). SInce polaris used to run from the soekris, with a little bit of luck you might find the config files of those servers there. Check /etc/lighttpd, /etc/vsftpd.conf, /etc/exports and /etc/samba/smb.conf. The script to kick mpd when a new file was dropped in the "Music" share didn't exist anywhere else.
The UPNP protocol allows for automatic recognition of shared media files by all compatible media players. Mediatomb seems to be the most complete UPNP server available as open source packet. It can be installed from the repositories.
