Brings back memories. First time I wanted to install Linux about fifteen years ago we ended up with a totally dead computer (that didn't stop me though, for about five years I used Slackware, then Debian, although sticking with WindowMaker. It seems to be a quite obscure window manager, but it definitely isn't a resource hog).D3thAdd3r wrote:Screwing around with dual boot and multiple drives way back then...
For sources today I think the best is GitHub: it is simple and free for open source stuff, and it is easy to pick up projects for further maintenance even if the original author left them behind. When the UCC ends, I will init a git repo for my game there. There might be others, though, but hopefully GitHub will stay around for long.
Both should be fine, here it is more likely that people notice problems. I think you (Lee) are a bit notorious for holding back sources, and Nebososo in the past seemingly had a site which he stopped maintaining, making all his games totally lost by the wiki.D3thAdd3r wrote:Do you propose we discuss individual items here or on the wiki discussion page for the games and demos page to get this decided and done?
I also noticed several games are hosted on uzebox.org, most notably those which entered on UCC's. There should be room for these, at least for roms, possibly also for important source milestones. As a best practice possibly seemingly abandoned games at least should be hosted here after functional roms were produced, their sources might be uploaded on GitHub (under the Uzebox organization as distinct Git repos).
