a DC++ hub could be used for sharing score collections inbetween users, e.g. where someone has a score but isn't able to submit it on IMSLP because either lack of copyright knowledge (don't know if its pd, or think it awfully complicated finding out) or time. an already hub for score sharing is existing available (sometimes with downtime), maybe we should link their hub here through some kind of collaboration? or we could set up our own instead...
For those of you not familiar with DC (copied out from the previous thread):
Basicly, DC++ works like this: users have the option to share files, these files will be listed in a so called "filelists" which are available for everyone in the hub to view. from the filelist one can choose which files to download. there is also an option to search the whole hub (the filelists of all users in a particular hub) for scores that are shared.
the client is available on http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/
an example of an already existing hub for scores is sheetmusic.serveftp.net:412 of coarse scores could be found in many other hubs, but this seems to be the only hub specialized for scores.
