I'm trying to create my own repository, I am using GIT for my source and wish to have my repository download from there - question - why do some host their code on GIT but yet point their xbmc repositories to somewhere else such as google code?
Anyhoo, my git repository is setup here -> https://github.com/Eldorados/eldorado-xbmc-addons
I've followed examples of others that I have found, but I must be missing one small step
My repo addon.xml is here: https://github.com/Eldorados/eldorado-xb.../addon.xml
I can install my repository no problems, and can see my one addon listed, but I get the following error when trying to install it:
00:03:55 T:7000 M:2177056768 ERROR: CRemoteControl::Connect - failed to connect

I have tried flip flopping between using zip files and not, neither have given me any success.. and in the case of using zip files, I am unclear on how to properly do this - does everyone manually zip their addons and commit them? How does the repo know which zip file to download and install?
In the case of not using zips as mine is currently set - my paths are the same as others I have found, and their GIT structure looks identicle.. so what am I missing?
Non-zip - https://github.com/vikjon0/qf-xbmc-addons/
Zips - https://github.com/mortstar/repository-mortstar-addons
I would prefer to model after this one
