Hi all,

I have an update site that I would like to make available to the world. My first thought was to do it at GitHub. There is a thread at StackOverflow that points to the release feature of GitHub, but it doesn't seem to be able to produce the required directory structure.

So what options are out there to publish an update site? Beyond setting up my own server?

Thank you.

Hi

I have my git repositories on github and publish the corresponding
update sites on sourceforge (see for instance,
http://xsemantics.sourceforge.net/download/ and
http://xtraitj.sourceforge.net/download/). Note that you must publish
the update sites using the Files service, you must not publish them on
the web space that sourceforge offers to your projects. The nice thing
is that sourceforge also offers rsync capabilities (and scp), so it's
really easy to copy update sites remotely and to keep the update sites
up to date.

Hope this helps
Lorenzo
