hi,

don't know if it will help, but i'll soon pull a new version of logo downloader which support poster and banner from the tvdb and support custom naming.
this will populate your tv show folders with banner.jpg / poster.jpg etc... in one shot.
this will make easier for end user to get all this kind of varieties necessary for aeon.

That's a good start. Please have him commit a license to his github
repo, then it's a matter of public record.

The other issues still stand. I'll be honest with you... the word
"Aeon" does not sit well with most XBMC devs. We associate it with
skin hacks, users doing crazy things, forks, half-completed features,
bloat, the list goes on. We certainly appreciate your work, and don't
want to discourage your effort, but there's a lot of history with
Aeon.

I'm not averse to adding it, but things have to be simplified. I'm not
saying it will be easy, but here's my proposal:

1. Get the original licensed. Sounds like Duncan is ok with doing this.
2. Merge the forks. Yea, I know. This will be rough. I fear that once
one is added, the other forks will cry foul, and say "You added his,
why won't you add mine? Mine is better/more original/slimmer/etc.".
Keep in mind, addons in the repo are for regular users. They have
likely not been to the forum, and know nothing of Aeon's history. And
they have no idea why one Aeon version is betteer/different than
another. Besides, having a few developers work on the same skin is
much more productive than each maintaining their own fork.
3. Make it work out of the box. This might already be the case with
yours, I'm not sure. If you want to add 10 different options for extra
fanart, thumbs, 4d trailers, fine... just be sure that users switching
from confluence will see similar functionality. If a skin requires
hours/days of configuration that's fine, but it doesn't belong in the
official repo.

Sorry if that was a bit blunt. With the above things fixed, the skin
would be a great addition to the repo, and we could put the issue to
rest once and for all :)
