Thus we have 4 sites where we can upload inkscape files. It's a bit too much IMHO, and we should decide which one to use. I'm not against uploading to your site, but I think we should try to keep on using modevia if possible, because it already provides all the necessary libs, Aaron and Ishmal gave lots of their time to set it up (I'm almost sure it is partially automated, but now broken due to our move to bzr) and users are used to it. If Aaron and Ishmal decide to give up modevia, then let's move the files somewhere else.
The good folks at Modevia volunteered to donate bandwidth and space to the Inkscape project. So we took them up on their offer. We use A LOT of bandwidth and space hosting these files. I don't think Bob or I have much time invested in the hosting arraignments. The time comes in making the builds and archives (which I haven't been doing for a long time). I see nothing wrong with branching out to other hosts as long as they can bear the traffic and provide reliable service.
We're welcome to use Launchpad for this. There are a few scripts out there that will do automatic uploads to a project, we could probably repurpose one for a daily script if someone was willing to setup the builds.
I'm not sure about how the system setup by the Redhat folks was working, but if someone will write the script to build the win32 nightlies on Linux I have a box that I could run that on.
