@barijaona this should be tested to see if HTTPS will work as a value for BASE_URL_TYP on sf.net.

@dak180 : Sourceforge accepts HTTPS, and will automatically redirect to HTTP whenever it considers it appropriate.

I like what you did ; however, for some reasons, changelog.xml used to be hosted at http://vienna-rss.sourceforge.net/changelog.xml, not in the download section. Similarly, dSYMs where uploaded to http://vienna-rss.sourceforge.net/debugging/.
Probably, the idea was to limit confusion risks to the visitors of the download section.

I have an unfinished branch build2. Can you have a look at it, starting with the draft of release instructions ? Thus, we may avoid duplication of work...

I would suspect that the reason for putting the changelog.xml file in that location is that sf.net has always been a bit opaque about what urls one should use for files in the download section when one is not using a full browser.

If it turns out that the url that I put together is unsuitable for the changelog.xml file for whatever reason I would instead recommend that it be located at http://www.vienna-rss.org/ so that it is unlikely to have to be relocated again.

SF.net activly discourages the uploading of any files of any significant size to a project's web area, saying explicitly that the downloads section should be used for that sort of thing, so I would not recommend putting the dSYMs there.

@barijaona On the subject of avoiding duplicate work, I do not suppose that there an irc channel (or some other real time dev hangout) somewhere?

at the time being, vienna-rss.org is strictly equivalent to vienna-rss.sourceforge.net ... But you are right : distributed builds should refer changelog through vienna-rss.org

Release instructions should not change, anyway.

No, we haven't any IRC channel... But generally, we have no more than 3 people active at the same time.

I will update my profile with some instant messaging infos.

Hi Guys,

Most of these things (like locations of files) are just of historic relevance :-)

Vienna is a rather old project (7+ years, see here: https://github.com/ViennaRSS/vienna-rss/commits/master?page=53). For example, the revision history available here on GitHub started out as a CVS repository sometime in early 2005. The project then migrated to SVN and at some point I decided to convert the history to Git and stick it here.

The same holds true for the website. It has been on numerous hosts over the years, and most things just kind of evolved.

My suggestion is to ALWAYS go for what makes most sense, without regard for how things used to be done.

@mstroeck : I mostly agree with you, but I'd add that I often prefer older but documented things to situations where rules are misunderstood.

@dak180 : I think pull request 123 is a good compromise. Commit numbers appear in Get info, crash logs and dSYM filenames, so programmers get what they need.

@barijaona if you have put up contact info anywhere, I have missed it.

@dak180 : Sorry, I forgot about IRC and instant messaging... To my surprise, Github does not include this kind of info on user's profile page.

I have Google Talk, Jabber, AIM/Apple Messages, MSN, ICQ, Facebook and Twitter accounts... Choose whatever suits you and I'll put my ID here.

@barijaona any sort of jabber-like account would be fine.

Having never really used one, I have no thoughts at all.

No thoughts either, but if some people are eager to do it, I will happily follow.
