Shoes packaging files seem to have fallen off Heroku

Shoes packaging files seem to have fallen off Heroku

This could well have been like this for ages. Darktakta made the changes to
pack.rb to reference shoes.heroku.com, e.g:

http://shoes.heroku.com/pkg/#{RELEASE_NAME.downcase}/#{platform}/shoes

But these files don't seem to exist anymore (unless I'm going mad). Any
chance we could get them put back?

Also, looks like pack.rb is not failing appropriately when it can't find
these files. I'll try and have a look into that.

Shoes packaging files seem to have fallen off Heroku

Why are we including an external dependency (ie network connection) in the
packaging process?

Wouldn't it be better to just package the required stuff in shoes, so that
the packager can operate properly when offline?

The packager can operate properly when offline. There is an option to
package the appropriate versions of Shoes with your app (requires
downloading the Shoes package), or you can set it so that when the user runs
the app for the first time, it will download Shoes.

Right, but if you want to package the appropriate version of shoes with 
your app, pack.rb connects to a server to get files.

Those files could be distributed with shoes in the first place, which 
would remove an external dependency from the packager (a dependency that 
has failed - once when _why went offline, and now there are complaints 
that the files are missing from heroku).

If the files are missing from the server, it won't help to package without
shoes - the end user won't be able to download them either.

Yeah, they could be included. But it would significantly increase the  
size of shoes. Perhaps the best way would be to offer a fat and thin  
version of Policeman. One that comes with everything for packaging and  
one that will download.

Also I don't think there are complaints as such just that someone  
finally noticed :-)

Anyway, should be fixed now. Have put the references back onto shoes.heroku.com 
  and files are on Github (but I'll move them somewhere better shorty).

Have also improved pack.rb to give proper feedback.

Just need a slight rename on heroku. Didn't have time to check last night so
checked in work this morning. Unfortunately can't push to heroku from work.
Will have this fixed in about 6-7 hours from this message.

Well, Shoes could package with previously downloaded version if internet
connection is down. I'm pretty sure that it would be good, and I will look
into pack.rb why it is not doing so.

Yes, I now remember coding it that way. Will look into pack.rb anyway, just
for sports - I see you did some upgrades there i5m, im interested.

Sorry, didn't recognise you (Darktatka).  Yes, for some reason, your  
alerts were not showing if internet download failed or if it couldn't  
be found locally. I've just re-jigged your work, no major changes.

Should now be correct. Fingers crossed. I hope.
