I have a problem :
My forum account has changed, I now use "pyrollo" instead of "Naj" (Naj account has been wiped out by mistake).
On content DB, pyrollo git hub account is still linked to Naj forum account and I could not find a way to change that.

Good, but I think it's bad idea to include a whole browser for a small website. I would recommend to add API and through that make a "Mods" menu like in older minetest versions.

No browser is included in Minetest - there's a content installer menu instead, similar to the one in older versions

Something seems to be "working" for quite a long time :

- I went to https://content.minetest.net/
- Clicked on "Claim your account"
- Entered "pyrollo" as user account
- Clicked on "Next: Log with GitHub"

and get stucked on a page saying "Working..." (I waited ten minutes but nothing happened)

I have also added thumbnail generation and pagination

How to log in with username/password when you previously logged in using GitHub but don’t want to do that anymore due to some recent facts?

Wait! You used IE?! Sacrilege! The only time IE should ever be used is when downloading another browser!

CDB now supports importing meta from any git repo in the add package page

Make sure to ctrl+shift+r to force update the JS, however

CDB can now import screenshots and make releases from any git repo - there's now nothing special about Github accept the OAuth login

Wow! Great! Will try soon. Is there a way to edit the "Accounts" part of the CDB account? I'd like to replace that one Microsoft service with my new home :)

... another question: How to remove releases? And how to tell the CDB to use the Git provider link and not create a zip file by itself?

You can't remove active releases as that will cause the client to mess up. If there's a release which isn't the latest release that you want to delete, then please pass me the URL and I'll get around to it

What do you mean by git provider link? Similar to how it makes release links for github? Currently this isn't supported as I'd need to add support for each services API which takes time

Wasn't it that the CDB now supports Git itself? So when I provide a Git URL (form another Git provider than GitHub) it should use that.

Example: https://content.minetest.net/packages/L ... hunger_ng/

I created a new release and the CDB somehow created a zip file from some source I can't verify which source it was. And the older release is the GitHub link.

It creates the zip using git archive. Minetest doesn't support git, only zip archives.

Okay, but the first release is a link to GitHub, the second release is a link to an internal file. I can't see/verify what source was used to generate the file. Is there a way to have it like the GitHub link or is there a way to verify what source was used?

No unfortunately, that's a good point. I'll add a COMMIT file and put the hash in it. I'll also probably add support for the gitlab API to do a similar thing to github, if it's possible
