Re: sourceforge


I would like to thank those who made sourceforge site possible.

Is this official download site from now on?


We are trying to get there. Igor is looking for a volunteer that would manage the released file sets there. We feel this is necessary because:

1) The previous download sites are mysteriously off line, and

2) Since Jean-Pierre is not reachable

We are trying to take the initiative to get an alternative download site set up for folks.

What we need is a volunteer that can build the binaries and put them on the website. Jean-Pierre has done this in the past. We have no idea if he is still interested in doing this any more, since we cannot talk to him.

There are really two roles here a) making/compiling/building the release files, and b) putting them on the website.

And there are two operating systems that have been supported: x86 Linux and Windows. So this comprises a matrix of 4 tasks.

Two operating systems X two uploads.

Ideally Jean-Pierre would simply take the lead on this, but it looks like that is not going to happen, so we are looking for volunteers.
