what do you think if Grunch will be connected to a database linked to MorphOS-Storage ?
I think Grunch is an excellent software but i think it will be better with a database updated.
It sounds like a lot of work to set up and constantly maintain, and also everyone wanting to use the MorphOS-Storage database, would need to alter their Grunch program to tell it to search for updates there, instead of the individual developer's database's, but I like the idea and think it would be very useful and convenient for most casual users.
IIRC, Grunch can be set up with a primary location to look for updates for each program, plus a secondary URL, to look at if the first URL fails, but I might be wrong about that, as I have not used Grunch in a long while. I'm away from home again, so I can't check the behavior of Grunch for a few weeks.
So, for what it's worth, you have my support if you decide to create a MorphOS-Storage database for many, or most of the programs that are available for download from that site, to make it easier for some users to use Grunch. Just as long as it is maintained often, otherwise it would be a detriment to the use of Grunch, if the database was not updated quickly, after any particular program update was released.
