Projects/files maintenance proposal

Scotty, arivero and I were talking about how to maintain a proper upload/download/feed location for our current development efforts.

Here is my thought. Assume the following:

IPKG repository for the iLiad:
http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/feed/

Uploads / downloads:
http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/users/
http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/projects/

http://projects.mobileread.com/reader/users/
http://projects.mobileread.com/reader/projects/

  1. A developer/hacker has a dedicated directory with full FTP rights (upload/delete/rename/etc.). Depending on his reader device, the directory would be publicly accessible for downloads @

    http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/users/<developernick>
    or
    http://projects.mobileread.com/reader/users/<developernick>

  2. A project manager (any developer/hacker who is trusted) has full access to all directories. Upon request, he can move files from a developer to an appropriate project tree. Projects are publicly accessible for downloads @

    http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/projects/<projectname>

  3. Anonymous uploads will be supported and have to be managed by project managers before they become publicly downloadable.
  4. Packages in the iLiad IPKG repository are immutable -- they cannot be changed or removed but new versions can be added by trusted persons.
  5. Every 1hr, the maintainer/package file of the repository will be automatically refreshed.
  • Subversion. Unless we're going to work on a major project, together in a group, I don't think subversion is currently needed.
  • Wiki uploads. Files on a Wiki are hard to manage and don't scale well. Wiki's are OK for uploading images or documents, but not really for anything else.

Now I am curious for your feedback.

So I could upload stuff and anyone could get it at http://projects.mobileread.com/iliad/users/tadw/ ?

Basically... yes.

Plus we could more easily keep track of projects, and have a feed for iLiad packages. This would come handy for instance if we consider Scotty's latest advances in developing for the iLiad.

I'm all for it. Attaching files to the forum messages is not that flexible :-).

Great! ;-)
