It might be useful to post a simple howto here...
* anyone can anonymously "checkout" the latest project(s)
svn co http://markconstable.com/jam

# or, for less data transfer (no hidden .svn dirs) but
# then "svn up" does not work, but is good for tar/zipping
svn export http://markconstable.com/jam
* anyone who sends me an email address and password can
have commit (upload) privileges, email email@example.com
svn co http://your%40email.address:firstname.lastname@example.org/jam
cp -a /current/audio/files/* myproject
svn add myproject # recursively adds everything in folder
svn commit # brings up editor for commit notes
svn update # updates local view of central repo
* for now, anything goes, just upload stuff and see what
happens, it will become obvious what does, or not, work
* anyone can zip/tarball/torrent any checked out project
and host it anywhere else they care to
* I will endeavour to put together a forum asap so that
commit log/diffs can go into their own topic and thus
have an RSS feed (most important way to stay uptodate)
* I am enthused about collab possibilities based on SVN
(or any SCM system) and recently set up a site to host
custom Archlinux packages at...
but there is 100Mb limit which is no where near enough
space for audio. The intergrated wiki and google groups
makes the above an easy no-brainer for collaboration
* If Git was the SCM backend then everyone involved would
have a "master copy" ... Git is truly distributed but,
for now, SVN is readily available with plenty of support
* the only requirement is that all material uploaded must
be under either GPL or a very liberal OSS license
Re licensing, I can suggest this as a potential license...
