Re:Version Manager for Software

Anthony likes my idea 😉 He Writes

I like the idea. The hardest part would be to get the community to rally and actually maintain this. Perhaps it could be done in conjunction with CJAN. Would it also provide automatic download, perhaps through an Ant task?

Coming to think of it, I think I have a better idea of maintaining the server.

What if it followed the Java Blogs model. The software developer/group would register an RSS/XML feed for their releases on the site and the server would periodically read the RSS feeds and have the latest information. As for automatic download, that could be a feature. Im not sure if everyone would like the software to be automatically downloaded.

Your thoughts Anthony?
