Great work Michael! This is very, very appreciated.
I agree with Dirk, doing this on regular basis with a script. For example, you
have a separate SVN tree that will be updated daily and then tarballs will be
created out of it. Then I do not think there will be a problem with how many
modules to have available for download.
Also, I remember someone brought up the question on keeping these tarballs
online so that the links can be shared and do not expire - I think it should
be done this way: there should be symlinks named like
"kdebase-svn-current.tar.bz2" which point to the actual latest snapshots
(e.g. "kdebase-svn-r445398.tar.bz2"). This means when a new snapshot is made,
old tarballs are deleted, but "current" links are valid and just point to the
Thanks again to everybody!
