Re: For discussion - CVS at sourceforge

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I think I like the idea of sourceforge but the limited number of screen
shots is a bummer. Navigating the system isn't a problem for me, I've
been using it for a while (http://sourceforge.net/projects/panotools - I
wrote clens). I wouldn't put all the scripts into one file though. Then
one wouldn't be able to just download one script. I would make each
script it's own package, like on the panotools page.
