this "fork" would been much more effective when current source code is in a repository. atm its not easily possible to send pull requests, also its not possible to see current download.

in short, please add the current source code to some git repository!

    for example you could have forked this:

    I agree with abma, being able to access the source code using git is vital to the continued success of the project.

    In my workflow all libraries are sub modules of the root git repository. Even by creating a source forge git mount point for the project is preferable.

    Current downloads are always accessible from the files category. I would like to discuss any changes before they are committed to a repository. I can invest time into ResIL only once every few months, but I suppose that is still better than nothing.

    i'm pretty sure you won't always upload a file package when you changed source code. thats a no-go. you can discuss changes before you merge, but this only works fine with a repo as well.

    please invest some time and learn how a dvcs works.

    I'm vote for creating repository too. If you can't create it on sf.net I think github or gitorious is good choose.

    Regards,
    Alexey.

    Yes, please create a (git) repository. Nobody is asking you to give away control over the project. We just want to be make this project easier to use and make it easier to suggest possible code fixes.

    Skyfaller:
    this blocks a lot of other projects / makes it VERY difficult to contribute to this project. you could get a lot of help / patches when you would make the source code available in a repository.

    I have reached a stable state for the new version. I'll try to create a git repository in the weekend. I still need to apply a few patches and make it build on non-Windows. Would the repository make that easier?

    Ideally, the build systems would use the included sources when they are not available in the default locations.

    Skyfaller, please create git repository on github. Then users that interested in ResIL will be able to send you patches or discuss issues.
