Let’s hear my contributors without trying to censure them. I have received a lot of positive feedback by emails, as people were not able to post anything on this forum for a while, or they would find the context too toxic to post.
One positive thing I got from this exercise is that my contributors want a simpler way to get the code. They don’t want to be “spammed” with frequent updates. That’s why I introduced the concept of “like” my thread in the 1st place: to avoid “spamming” people with updates when they don’t want to receive them. Some contributors just wanted to download the code once, and not receive any updates. Things would be much simpler with an AppStore, but ST decided to not build one.
I will look into it ways with my ecommerce web provider to ways to do a “pull” approach instead of a “push”.
I have to do some tests, but it looks like some contributors were already using the “pull” approach with the original download link provided to them. It seems that they were able to get the newer “version” by just clicking on the download link several times (days after). So, I will look into this “pull” approach during the Holidays.
My ecobee’s implementation will be added new features soon with the ecobee switch, so I want to be ready for it. I don’t have much time to respond to some personal diatribes against me. And, this is a personal “fun” hobby of mine, so I want to keep it that way.
Thnx for all your support!!
