Beginning with OpenELEC-3.2 we will seperate some addons from our buildsystem and won't provide them anymore within our official addon repo. The reason for this to make it easier for us to maintain our core OS sources and give 3rdparty addon developers the possibility to submit their own addons (also such which we rejected to be included in the past) to a global repo.
This Repo will not be included by default in OpenELEC, so the user must install the repo byself. This can be done by downloading the repo from http://unofficial.addon.pro, putting this via samba or ssh onto your box and install this repo as zip file via XBMC's addon browser (see also http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on_manager#How_to_install_from_a_ZIP_file)
We also reorganized the forum to reflect these changes. The addon forum is now seperated into
While we keep maintaining some basic addons in our official (and per default installed) addon repo, the unofficial repo and addons will be fully maintained by the creators of these addons. If such addon stops working, needs updates or there are issues to fix the addon maintainer is responsible for this.
Addon maintainers can:
- request a own subforum for support and talk in our forum
- write pullrequest athttps://github.com/OpenELEC/unofficial-addons/pulls to add own addons. New addons have to be tested or fix existing issues
