We're quite happy to handle all the release side of things for you
through the official repository should you wish. The process is
pretty simple - you mail the list when you want a repository pull and
we'll pull the sources of the addons into our git repo and everything
is automated from there on.
* User doesn't need to install your repository addon before they get
access to your addons.
* User doesn't need to clutter their sources with lots of repositories.
* No need for you to zip up your addons.
* No need to worry about regenerating addons.xml whenever you release anything.
* You utilize our mirror system so users get faster downloads.
* Your addons must comply with our repository guidelines (mainly an
issue for plugins that work around encryption or for skins that use
unlicensed fonts or images)
* You perhaps lose a little bit of control as you have to wait for us
to make the pull.
Ofcourse, you're welcome to have your own repository instead, but at
least for the short term we'll be accepting only "normal" addons
rather than separate repositories where possible. The goal is to get
things unified through the official repository where possible in the
first instance to make it as easy as possible for the end user.
If your addons can't be added to the official repository due to legal
issues then a separate repository is better in that regard. We'd
recommend that several folks get together and try and utilize the same
repository in this case - I think it's better for users if there are
fewer repositories for them to worry about. I'm sure there are some
folk on the XBMC team who would be happy to help set this up.
