Szabolcs pointed in chat to this blog-post which tells us, that the upload functionality of GitHub is now turned off.
This renders our Attachments repository completely useless because now, someone needs a local copy to be able to push a file to this place. Even the fact, that you cannot use a simple web-interface to upload a file would probably be a reason for people to not use it.
In the blog-post they pointed to Amazon S3 or Amazon Cloud Front as alternative. Has someone experience here and can provide a good alternative for our former attachment storage? From my point of view, we have to following requirements:
- We need more than one user. We have at least a couple of high rep users who transfer post attachment to this central place.
- Uploading and link must be easy so that it is really used.
- what else?
