To get back on the archiving bit. Due to size constraints I *do* remove all the older nightlies from time to time. I keep a back up of them on my own system though (actually the ones on my own system are rebuilds with LZMA compressed installers, which are some MBs smaller). Currently I have 973MB of such "backed-up" installers on my local HDD. I could of course upload them to http://download.gna.org/warzone/snapshots/ . I'm not sure if Gna! would have any problems with storing that amount of data though... PS The revisions for which I've got backed-up installers (both debug and non-debug, aka release build): 4843, 4853, 4875, 5100, 5125, 5145, 5196, 5215, 5239, 5243, 5250, 5252, 5253, 5260, 5277, 5279 and 5280. -- Giel
