But yes, that's always been my impression, too, that Curse is just severely understaffed (even when features do get released, they're buggy from day one, and just never get fixed), so any tools we can use that don't depend on Curse getting shit done are very welcome.
wowace doesn't allow zip file uploads, which is a policy I personally like, as it ensures that everyone uses the repositories properly.
It's a policy that's been nothing but a pain in my ass due to the packager being so unreliable, and is the reason that I moved all of my addons (other than Grid) off the wowace.com domain and then out of Curse-hosted repositories altogether. The only reason I'm using Curse-hosted repos again now is because I'm using Git and can push to Curse in addition to another, actually reliable remote repo (GitHub). Grid is still in a WowAce SVN repo, and the server is down an unacceptably high percent (at least 10%) of the time when I try to commit changes.
It's still annoying to have to babysit the packager every time I tag a release to make sure it actually makes a ZIP file, but at least if it's not working, I have the option of just uploading a ZIP manually; without that option I'm very likely to simply forget about it if it still hasn't packaged by the time I go to bed, and then 6 months later I finally realize why people are still reporting a bug I fixed months and months ago. :rolleyes:
Still need to get around to trying this out... it should be especially good with the new API for uploading files to WoWInterface, since I wouldn't have to wait for the actual Curse packager to run, which is the leading cause of my addons not being synchonized on both sites. :p
