Snapshots: are type "fs" compatible with type "s3"?

Is it possible to do a snapshot type "fs" (locally), sync the local snapshot location to an s3 bucket, and then from an AWS elasticsearch instance run a restore using the s3 bucket containing the snapshot generated with type "fs"?

Know I could directly sync the snapshot to "s3" with a local install of repository-s3 plugin ; however find this to be incredibly slow with little to no feedback as to what is happening. Prefer the speed of a local snapshot (local is source of truth) and then to see the progress of s3 syncing via the aws-cli.

Both "fs" and "s3" currently use the same directory layout, so it should be possible.

Awesome! Thanks for the insight, I'll give it a go.

This worked great, thanks again!
