Description

We have been using Github's file upload under http://github.com/clojure for uploading releases

Pros:

  • looked easy
  • download tracking
  • tool we are already using

Cons:

  • unreliable
    • fails to upload
      • tested on multiple browsers with and without Flash
    • even when it works seems to show up during upload
      • presumably would fail the download in these cases
    • claims to upload but has garbage file
      • shows up in UI
      • permission error when you try to get it
      • sometimes causes browser to crash (not Github fault, but still...)
    • has added two hours of dev time to the current release (so far)

In order to get 1.3.0-alpha6 out the door (and end a multihour ordeal) I am pushing it to the files section at clojure.org.
