Ok, I've updated my Z to RC12. After hunting over all the groups for the new kdepim (Really REALLY good compile btw!), the patched apmsleep, the new this and the new that, its really difficult for someone to easily add packages to their Z. In fact, upgrading from RC9 to RC12 was particularly painful simply because I spent so much time looking for the custom packages.
The ones in the stock unstable feed are quite old or have duplicates or simply fail with the latest RC.
Is there any reason that People don't upload their new packages to the pdaXrom unstable feed? Is the upload and updating part of it still working?
I think we really need a single site where anyone can upload a package, versioning is taken care of, and the feed is automatically generated from those files. Perhaps even have it so 'debian style' people can 'own' a package and be responsible for maintaining its version, and if someone doesn't update it for ages, someone else can take it over.
I also feel that the above could be improved, also 'debian style', in that the pristine source + diff-to-make-it-work-under-pdaxrom can be attached such that one can download either the binary ipkg or the .tgz file containing the source.
Your comments please,
PS - I would have no problems coding something above if that is what is needed, but I do not have the bandwidth to host such a site, though I could naturally put up a proof of concept site.
