Title: source in release tarballs
Post by: Fuddl on September 29, 2006, 06:53:50 pm
hi there!

are there any plans, that the oa project will include patched and up-to-date ioquake3 engine sources in the release tarballs? this would be very helpful for linux distributions to package oa!

cheers - fuddl

What release tarballs? I zip :)

Actually they're not in there due to size reasons, but they're always available in the SVN. If it becomes a serious issue (i.e. unable to obtain source of a certain revision from the SVN) then maybe. Size is also the reason why I didn't include ioq3ded and the rest of the binaries and had that on the SVN instead as well.

I'll think about it for the next version. I'm striving to keep a "happy, compact balance" on size for windows and linux
