TBH, there would be no need for web version of MorphOS Storage if the same were to be found in Grunch. And checking/downloading/updating through the OS gives a much more transparent feeling imo. Anyway, I am grateful for Storage, the way it is now. It serves a high purpose to have a central repo for a niche OS, rater than scattered software and googling across the web for developers' websites.
MorphOS Storage has also lots of other content that wouldn't be that suitable for Grunch (or Aminet for that matter) like screenshots, videos, documents, etc. And it's also nice to have them available on web for other people to see, who don't have MorphOS setup yet etc.Quote:
Well for the most entries it would (should) be enough to replace the broken morphos-files URL with a morphos-storage one.
This off course assumes that morphos-storage readmes confirm to the same pattern as those used on morphos-files (which really are just a copy of how Aminet handles them).
I haven't tried to use Storage for Grunch for anything myself yet... Storage renames filenames to contain version numbers, but I guess Grunch could handle that too, but one more change in databases.
BTW. could you change your database to some other server? :) It makes a slowdown at Grunch startup always for some reason...
