"superior knowledge" ? Uhh.. dude? I've written a total of 3 small addons.. 2 of which were simple fubar plugins..
the difference is, I guess, I took the time to read the svn for idiots thing before I began using it. heh
now, as far as my manner goes? I dont give a rats behind about "political correct" BS.. I guess it's the "no bullshit truck driver" thing... i say whats on my mind. I have no intentions to insult anyone...
however, if your mental constitution is such that reading words on a website forum hurts your feelings, you have other, more pressing issues to deal with.
That link provides ways of how to set up externals.
Just placing them into the .toc file does -nothing- for the files.wowace.com package generator... that operates purely on the SVN properties.
placing the embeds into the .toc file only allows supporting updaters to properly select and download the libraries that the addon needs to run properly.
Also, only place actual addon names into X-Embeds and OptDeps.. oh, and be sure to -only- put the things the addon needs to function into X-Embeds and Dependencies. FuBar plugins, contrary to what some think, actually -do- work without fubar.
OptDeps are for optional addons, libs that should be loaded (IF they exist) to allow the addon to access their features, but the addon will run without them (the exception to this rule is that anything in X-Embeds should also be in optDeps, so they'll be sure to be loaded when the addon needs them.
