WoWAce going down

Just to let you know:

This was posted by daviesh at atlasmod.com:

http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php? ... #msg230826

Main bullet points:
-In a surprise to no one, wowace has been bleeding money in terms of bandwidth so curse have been propping them up
-The repository will be re-arranged and addon authors able to restrict access to their mods
-files.wowace.com and the WoWAceUpdater will be killed off. Both are HUGE bandwidth hogs. Curse/Curseforge will now be the front end for the repository and the WoWAceUpdater will be replaced a new Curse Client.
-The changes will happen mid-August

::curious:: What would need to happen with the cure/ace side of things to make it feasible to have an interface work the same as it does/did with wowace's?

a real-time or cashed RSS feed of the latest addon zip URL's

Code: Select all
<addons>
 <addon version="x.x.x" toc="x.x.x.x" name="xxxxxx" author="someperson">
  <description>
   blah blah this is what it does
  </description>
  <mirror1url>
   http://download.curse.whatever.notsure.com/somequerystring
  </mirror1url>
  <mirror2url>
   http://download.amirror.whatever.notsure.com/somequerystring
  </mirror2url>
 </addon>
</addons>


of course luxuries like dependencies, changelog, etc. would be nice ;)

There does seem to be a per-addon feed for files, but that does not include actual download links.
