(I think the actual filenames you uploaded are all-lowercase, though.) > But, I don't think that is as a popular for as zip. Oh, well I hope no one > that needs it has issues with that format. 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 still think the size limit needs to be raised. 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.) > So, I updated the custom builds wiki page to show the .rar links.

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: http://openwall.info/wiki/john/custom-builds Thanks again, Alexander
