  • Manage Releases Role

Notes

  • Releases containing links that route or lead to the Project in some fashion will not be usable as a Project Notice. The Notice requirement to submit the page supersedes the ability to follow the link (for security purposes), and as such the link will be unusable until the Notice requirement has been fulfilled.
  • URL parameters should contain everything that appears in the URL link you are using after the "?" symbol. Everything prior to the "?" symbol should be included in the URL field. The "?" symbol is not required in either the URL link or the URL Parameters.
  • External download attempts can be logged in a similar manner to local file downloads (via the "Log Download Attempt" check box), however only the attempt to download is logged. After the attempt is made, we have no additional data we can collect on errors or cancellations after-the-fact.
