#108757 Large data files for stellarium



For the stellarium project we are thinking about adding
some large star catalogs. The largers files sizes are
respectively 44mb, 160mb and 296mb. Am I allowed to put
such large files on sf file download servers? These
files will be distributed as separate packages, and I
don't know what percentage of the stellarium users
will download them. So it's hard to estimate the
required bad width...
