> distfiles.m.o is for source code archives. You cannot manually upload anything there, but you can ask the macosforge admin to do so. However there should be no need to, assuming you can put the distfiles anywhere else on the Internet and point the portfile to that location via the master_sites. Before you do so, ensure that the license agreement allows you to do so. And assuming it does, please work with the developers of the software to make it available via a direct link from their site.

Yeah, I did that already, but they are a little slow to process requests… So in the meantime…

I uploaded the source code to some server at work, but it is an ADSL-type line, so it’s going to be at best slow. I hope some macports server can cache the file somehow.

Thanks Ryan, as usual.
