Simply use your ftp client on ftp.tuxfamily.org with your login (the panel one), files belong to your group and are replaceable by your project's contributors. Please add a README file including :

  • Repository's content, its organization
  • The license you chose for your files (see LicenceLibre) : add a LICENSE or COPYRIGHT file (like in debian)
  • How to use this repository
  • You can name this file MANIFEST (or _README or .README ? to place it first of list) => verify what is printed with an ftp connection.

Stats

You can get statistics at http://stats.download.tuxfamily.org/YOURGROUP/, for example: http://stats.download.tuxfamily.org/vhffs4/

Other

  • Look at http://download.tuxfamily.org/vhffs4/ for a debian repository example.
  • Think to put a md5sum or sha1 file for ISO images (It allows to check the downloaded files)
  • Please tidy up your folders (more than your room) to foresee next versions.
