ftp.haiku-ports.de will be serving our binaries from now on. The server and domain name are a generous gift from Daniel Weber. Thanks, Daniel!
To upload files, log in with your HaikuPorts user name and password. Passwords are automatically updated once a day. So when changing your password in Trac, the FTP server will still be requiring the old password for a couple of hours. The contents of the FTP server can also be browsed: http://www.haiku-ports.de/packages/. As you can see, the directory structure mimics the PortLog hierarchy.
When uploading binary files, be sure that you include an .OptionalPackageDescription file in the root of the zip file.
Dreamhost moved haiku-files.org to a new host. Unfortunately, this broke some things. I managed to get it working again, but I cannot be sure everything is fixed. If you run into anything peculiar, please let me know!
The HaikuPorts project has been relocated to the ports.haiku-files.org subdomain. The domain and hosting space are kindly provided by DreamHost.
While getting everything to run has proven to be quite the challenge, I can say that things are set up neatly now. A big advantage to the new hosting is that it allows a lot more flexibility. Along with a fresh Trac version, a number of plugins have been installed to provide some handy features. The PortLogPlugin? was developed especially for HaikuPorts to keep things neat in the PortLog. Last but not least, the website now looks a bit less dull thanks to the introduction of the HaikuPorts logo.
