S'pose you have something--a utility, or a description of a neat application your company built, or ...--you want to contribute for general use. Where do you put it?
[We don't have CPAN.]
[What do we have?]
See also the software hosting facilities page, and Where can I store my nifty new Tcl program so others can get it.
There are several parallel issues here.
LV Can someone provide somewhere on this page the url for the orphaned code web site?
I don't know what to do about the case where the owner wants to continuing owning the code but won't be maintaining the code further.
There are several projects which provide project management and space facilities.
Several of us who do plan to maintain long-term storage generally make pieces of it available when asked. This works best for file images which change rarely.
Of course, finding the list of who to ask is still non-trivial.
Note that Steve's archive is described on the Wiki: CANTCL.
Among "free Web hosting sites" [link to list ...], http://www.cfm-resources.com/ has a good reputation with some acquaintances.
If you wrap your code into a Starkit - then you can submit it to the Starkit Distribution Archive (sdarchive). These packages can be downloaded from the web, or quickly fetched and kept up-to-date (via HTTP) using the Starsync mechanism built into SDX. As of Feb 2003, there are over 100 starkits - ready to run: just add tclkit...
One issue to consider - should orphaned code be included in Cantcl, sdarchive, and other repositories of downloadable packages/applications? If there's no one around to answer questions or provide support, should one at the very least segregate the code so that proper expectations from downloaders is set?
It seems like there should be some place where abandoned code could reside - just in case someone wants to come along and adopt it. However, in general, the orphan code situation is one of the more common complaints - trying to figure out where to get help or newer versions of this or that package. Of course, there are always the many consultants, etc. available for hire.
