Follow-up Comment #7, patch #3331 (project freeciv): I do plan to continue shipping .zips. While I take on board the comments about the handling of awkward filenames, I assert we don't have any and will notice if we gain any, and ZIP is still a useful baseline format which is natively understood by Windows without being aggressively MS-specific (unlike .cab etc).
(I'm not buying 7z or rar -- anyone who can download an extractor for those could just as well get one for .tar.*. I don't think that we have to worry about GPL compliance; unarchivers are easily obtained.) So please do commit this, it should save a manual step in the release process. (Not that I've tried it yet.) _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?3331> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
