Need Help hosting a slackbulid source


I maintain the ioquake3 slackbuild at SBo, I recently decided not to renew my domain and figured I would just use my ISP supplied webspace for my files. I found out that my ISP is now a bunch of cheapskates and no longer offer any webspace, I have been using google sites for my other files but the ioquake3 source is to large (40mb) to put on there so I was wondering if anybody here would help me out and host the source for me. You can also take over maintenance of the slackbuild if you want but I still don't mind maintaining it, I just need someone to host the source. If anyone is willing all you have to do is make the source yourself from svn. All you have to do is run these commands.

svn co svn://svn.icculus.org/quake3/trunk ioquake3
tar cvf ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz ioquake3

This will leave you with the source called ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz

Thanks again in advanced for any help on this.

Why not use DropBox to host your source files, drop them in a Public Folder.

Delete all .svn directories before compress the source can significantly reduce the space required.

you can also do an
Code:
svn export ioquake3 ioquake3-r2252
to have a ioquake3-r2252 folder with clean sources.

Thanks for the offer, I really appreciate it, however I threw it on dropbox and it is working fine.

Also, tar does not actually compress the file with gzip unless you add the 'z' option

Code:
$ tar cvf ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz ioquake3-r2252
$ du -h ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz 
20M     ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz

$ tar cvzf ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz ioquake3-r2252
$ du -h ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz 
5.0M    ioquake3-r2252.tar.gz
