Spreadcoin Transition
« on: March 04, 2015, 10:39:49 pm »
As spreadcoin.net is no longer available I propose we start transitioning all the previous content such as the wallets, block chain explorer etc to either spreadcointalk or my preferred option a mirror based system through sourceforge or github

Edit:- to reiterate this point there is presently no location to download binaries for any version of the wallet, mining apps and even the test net.

Agreed.

Also, has someone downloaded Mr. Spread's whitepaper?
I think I have it on my tablet...

Yes, I found it. We need to put this somewhere too...

We just have to wait.

I like the github idea.  We need a centralized location for all of this.

I created a github org “Spreadcoin” (name can be changed later, if desired).

Invitations to become co-owners sent to all the subscribers here for whom I'm confident I've identified the corresponding Github a/c name.

georgem, is that you on github as “georgem”?

All repos in orig GH org have been forked to new org.

Cheers

You can store and host own website with github:
https://pages.github.com/

eg: spreadcoin.github.io

(you can add custom domain: https://help.github.com/articles/setting-up-a-custom-domain-with-github-pages/ )

There's a pile of reasons in favour of making use of this facility.

* gjhiggins reminds self to add this to issue list.

Invitation sent.

Part of the task of transition is to arrange matters to make it trivially easy for community members to contribute at any level on a range of relevant topics. You can confidently expect to be able to make a valued contribution whatever you consider your pay grade to be. Same principle as an API, be tolerant about input, strict about output.

I should explain my notion:

Invitations are egalitarian, for co-ownership. Folks who prefer (or later decide) not to take on the associated responsibilities of co-ownership (whatever they prove to be) need only indicate their preference to withdraw from the owners team and it will be respectfully actioned.

Cheers

I am willing to create a new website at spreadcoin.info and use a similar design like we see here at spreadcointalk.

If everyone is happy we can then put the website sourcecode at github and mirror it on other sites like spreadcoin.us

Redundancy FTW!

I think I have no ability to help, most like to follow closely, in order to donate my share of contribution.  :)

I do not know if it's relevant...
I have the windows 64bit wallet, the source code and also the Linux 64bit wallet.  :D

I do expect most people will share your perspective. However, I still think it's crucial that everyone at least has an opportunity to get a lot more out of it by putting a little in.

That's a tough one. The presence of the mining code in the wallet binary usually triggers virusscan alerts and it'd be a mistake to risk alarming people (or giving the smear campaign more ammunition) by making binaries available from a community-managed resource just yet. Other than that, their natural home is in the “releases” section of the github repos.

The best way of publishing a reliable source of trustworthy binaries is an issue that needs to be resolved. Github offers a good distribution platform, if only a plausible and maintainable “chain of custody” can be created to validate the trustworthiness of the creation of the binaries offered. The widespread tacit reliance on and assumption of, the basic trustworthiness/competence of the dev(s) is, simply, an exploit waiting to happen --- which, if recognised, can be nullified.
