What are the reasons you don't submit your addon to official repo?
#1
We would like to know why some of you won't submit you addons to the XBMC official repo?
Some of you only supply a .zip link to install it from, others supply their own repo.

We are just curious why that is and what we can do or need to change to get more contributions to our addon system.
(some are obvious though like piracy content)

Is it the guidelines/rules, submission process, it's just easier for you like you have it now?


I hope you will let us know the reason Smile
thx

This discussion can be about plugins and scripts

Overview list of reasons:
*Not knowing you could submit
*Having to maintain separate versions for each XBMC release if code changed between versions
*Not allowed to contain binary files
*Submission process by email
*No Beta/Testing repo
*No Bug Tracking System
*No good rating / usage stats
*Devs find pushing to own repo is much faster / easier to update their addon instead of doing it to official repo.
*don't want a code review
*once a month submission too restrictive


Suggestion:
*split mailinglist in two: submission and announcements (or handle it different)
Read/follow the forum rules.
