Proposal: I suggest the creation of a project group to handle this... it would help to have multiple people so that if a release comes out and some are busy, others can help package...
2. Private board on the forum - with a post to request volunteers from the Devotees to help and gain access to said board
3. Publish login info in the private board
4. Coordinate and discuss how to set up the page, etc
5. Package releases. I recommend always a .zip option for Windows, but for size, we should also offer .rar or others that are smaller. For Linux, native format as well. Offer complete packages - certainly a Windows + Pak64, Linux + Pak64; for stable, and latest, and let's discuss tested... But maybe also at least for stable, some other paks -- all playable paks would be nice. Sure, it's a little overlap in download and space, but the idea is to make it *easy*, and I can handle the bandwidth -------- but more discussions in the group board...
If there are no objections to this general idea, I'll work on setting it up tonight or tomorrow...
Hey Now that I have read this...Didn't I have a simular idea with that kids simutrans page I made
Granted it wasn't as well thought out though
I don't know what I can do to help but I try to.
