adding xpi to project makes repository unnecessarily large, and fetching slow
we should find better place for putting it, and add link into readme

also while making xpi we should remove all .git folders to make xpi small
in foximirror i have script for that.


I will host the xpi ... that is no problem ... I am midway through putting a decent web page together at the moment.

Why is fetching slow for you ... where are you based?

I did not realize that there were git folders throughout the repository, of course they should be removed. I will put some scripts together ... depending on my mood I might use Windows, Linux or OSX.


where are you based?
i am in Armenia with 512kb internet connection,
and acebug's repository is ~36mb while ace is 3mb only
seems like version control doesn't work well with archives


The web page won't be long but I need to make it look professional, add autoupdate etc.

Installing the xpi does not work properly from GitHub anyway because I have no control of GitHub's mime type configuration.
