Re: The "uploader" mystery.

There's no reason not to put real information in the "uploader" field. The reason it exists is so the uploader can be contacted about any problems (corrupt archive, legal, etc) if the archive is rejected.

OS4Depot should not allow the uploader field to be filled in with an invalid email address. Nobody should be putting "uploader" here, the upload should be rejected if there isn't a valid contact as it is probably a unauthorised upload, potentially an intentionally maliciously altered version.

I didn't realise you could even just type "uploader" in there and it would be accepted. I thought it was a OS4Depot admin doing those uploads.

Anyway, I'm with ChrisH - it's far easier to upload with FTP to Aminet. I don't want to have to try to keep track of where my software is and which versions, and it's harder when it has been uploaded elsewhere without my knowledge. I don't mind, as long as the person doing the uploads continues to update with newer versions, otherwise it's just a headache for everybody (although AmiUpdate helps).
