I recently uploaded my first addon (RotateMeIn!, http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/rmi/ ). My addon should allow users to download DKP data from EQDKP sites. I took (with permission) the code for a java program that does that from another addon, ShowDKP2 ( http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/show-dkp2/ ). When I try to commit the .jar file, or a .cmd file which contains just the command to launch the .jar ("java -jar sdkp.jar"), the SVN client informs me that I can't make changes to .jar files (or .cmd) and the file is not uploaded.
I am using Tortoise SVN. I suspect the problem is some automatic server-side filter that keeps executable files out. Is there any way I could get my files uploaded? (let me repeat, the jar is the exact same file that is already part of another addon, and the .cmd is extremely simple).
Thanks, I had read that (including the part about "Any executable files submitted to CurseForge or WowAce must be accompanied by its source code. A code review on the source code will be done to ensure that the executable is safe for use.")
sdkp.java (the source file for sdkp.jar) was included from the beginning in the package. Also, the .cmd is its own source. But SVN dismisses my .jar and .cmd upfront (it's an automatic response, there's no review of any kind). Do I need to submit them somewhere else for review?...
You could technically get someone with the rights/permissions to upload via SVN the .jar and .cmd files. As long as you don't attempt to modify those .jar and .cmd files, your commits would probably work.
I'm just guessing this will work btw, you'll have to get it confirmed.
I had to rewrite the DKP downloader and it's an EXE now. The upload got rejected, I made a report the way I learned the first time around, but now my report is not picked up by any moderator. I'm posting here hoping to attract some mod karma :)
