Thank you for making and sharing those builds!

(I think the actual filenames you uploaded are all-lowercase, though.)

I hope so too.  I think RAR is much more common than ZIPX that you
almost used.  (I also think it would have been better for you to exclude
the non-essential *.chr files - not all of them, but just the extra
ones, same ones that I exclude from the main 1.8.0 tarball - and use
classic ZIP, then.  But this does not matter now.  Maybe next time.)

I disagree.  It's a good thing to keep uploads sane.  Also, maybe you
were bumping into a timeout rather than into a size limit.  You never
replied to my question on just how slow the uploads were for you.
I think the timeout is at 5 minutes now.  Is it possible you were
hitting 5 minutes with these?  (Yes, that would be surprisingly slow.)

I notice you've since corrected this.

While you're at it, maybe you can correct some other broken file links
on that wiki page?  These appear in red right now:

john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c (2.6 MB)
john-1.7.8-3jumbo5.el6.x86_64.rpm (64-bit)
john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c (32-bit) (2.5 MB) 
john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-rs904c (64-bit) (2.6 MB)

I guess the DokuWiki update (documented in here before) might have
broken them, requiring a stricter wiki markup syntax or something.

For others reading this, we're talking about:

Thanks again,
