No need for that procedure, because..
Well from your aspect, when the files are on your server.
It's up to You to have them there. As long as you continue authoring
them on Your home machine there's no advantage over sticking with Your
ftp space, though.

But I am thinking about people who are in groups in the USA who are
wanting to promote LibreOffice by handing out the latest version of
someone's English DVD at the different meetings and events that these
people/groups go to.  There are events in the USA this week that could
get the latest files from us [including the one that are in the
"theme" and "pics" folders] that are not easily saved via a browser
system. These people would not have access to our FTP account as some
of the TDF/LibreOffice people now have [or at least I emailed them the
user/password info]. There people who do not have FTP access NEEDS
some other way to get the files and folders from "us" that is easy if
they had FTP access, but hard if they only have browser access.
I don't see any advantage of this procedure over providing recent, well
aproved ISO-files. Of course that's very painful, as long as You think
the preferred means creating those is Your home machine.

No help possible with this from our side.


The easiest way of doing things would be to have everyone download an ISO file for the current version of the project. That would mean downloading 3.8 GB, or so, of a file each time there is a new release of the ISO file. Some people may rather just have to download the changes/updated files instead of the whole DVD. This Archive Files/Folders option is a way for them to do that.

Now the 3.3.2 version just came out. The only changes to the DVD would be the install folder, with the 3.3.2 fines install of the 3.3.1 files, the Install.html file, and any other HTML page that lists the version 3.3.1 instead of 3.3.2. So there will be one folder and a few HTML files. All the rest of the folders and files would be the same. So if someone wanted to build their own DVD from the files/folders, then all they would have to do is download the newly updated ones for version 3.3.2 and not download any other ones. The is 1.8 GB of files instead of 3.6 to 3.8 GB of a full ISO file.

So for now, Drew has a link for an older snapshot of the DVD. As soon as the new install files are completely download, I will have him download whatever files/folders he would need to update his local folder and have him build the new DVD and place it on his "portal". When everything is done on my end and I have the ISO file of the 3.3.2 DVD, I can upload it to someone's server for the people with TDF and LibreOffice-Box to have access to it "locally" to their server system.

I am currently uploading all the new files to the online install folders. As soon as the RPM x86-64 files are downloaded to my local computer, I will upload them to our project's site, and then upload the new HTML files listing, and linking to, the 3.3.2 files.
