What about a web page, or a a simple directory where people can see files, rather than a direct link to the archive?

And by the way, revision number os better than date yes, since there can be several revisions in one day ;)

You can link directly to the folder with: http://sfml.groogy.se/

This way, If I ever get time, I can do a proper webpage and you won't need to change anything.

And what should the filename format be?
sfml2-rXXXX
sfml2-revisionXXXX
sfml2-XXXX

I might change compression method after I´ve compared what gives the best result :)

I don't care, as long as there's "sfml2" and the revision number inside ;)

IS that supported on all platforms then?

Anyway, no matter what format, it is up so that you can link to it now :)

What do you mean by "best result"? Highest compression ratio? If so, then it's not true.

Yup, tarballs are supported on all platforms that are supported by SFML.

I think tar.bz2 is the best compromise between compression ratio and availability. That's the standard format on Linux.

I currently just use Rar, I got the best result from that so far. It is available to both Windows and Linux, don't know about Mac though.

Edit: Also I will put up the latest revision tomorrow when I get to school.
Though the one up right now should be enough.

Also just wondering, how many revisions should I keep there at one time? 5-10?

There are open-source implementations of the decoding algorithm, but encoding is 100% proprietary and closed. So, some people may not like it ;)

I have no idea. 3 should be enough, if there's something wrong with one revision I usually fix it quickly.

Aight 3 it is. Well I don't think there is much to change anymore. The compression can be changed over time without creating any issues if people have a problem with it.
