Alright, I went ahead to do so, and while I were able to commit some small fixes, it wouldn't let me tag. TortoiseSVN gives me Access denied. Tried both public and dev URL. Is this intended? Should ask elsewhere I suppose. The option to do it directly from the project site is not available to me.
Well, as far as I can tell the required-dependencies is the only solution that really works. (as long as the Curse client is used) It does work, right? Won't remove the dependencies if another addon that uses them is removed?
But the alpha thing won't really work. All the repos are open; would it be frowned upon to tag them so the up-to-date files can be installed via dependencies? As far as I can tell the alphas are perfectly stable and used in Altoholic, while the tags are, in some (all?) cases, several years old.
Hoping this bump isn't considered inappropriate as I think it's highly related..
So I'm in need of bundling DataStore. Is there a preferred method after all these years? I was going to go with required-dependencies, but I need the latest alpha as they are updated and stable while releases are way out of date. The client won't install an alpha version, will it?
