People’s curiosity has no limits, particularly when it comes to Wesnoth add-ons.
In order to reproduce a bug, I had uploaded and removed a test add-on from the add-on servers for 1.8 and trunk several times, yet it seems I forgot to remove it the last time. This hasn’t stopped people from downloading it out of morbid curiosity, although nobody has dared to ask me about it on IRC or the forums. Certainly not news to me, since this is exactly what happened with it the last time prior to its removal.
As of this writing, the 1.8 version has had 949 downloads, as it can be seen in the screenshot above. You’d think an add-on with a description of “FOO” and a misspelled title would not attract anyone to try it, but this principle doesn’t work in practice. Had the add-on contained code to break all other add-ons, people would still not get the idea, I guess. Then again, I’m talking about users who often mistakenly download the source code tarballs and then ask how to install Wesnoth on Windows or Mac OS X.
This is what I get for forgetting to remove this kind of stuff. Thanks Gambit for pointing it out to me this night.
