I don't think you'll get any issues, if it's a demo you may maybe need permission.

Is there some reason why? Unless they're nightlies from svn or something, it would be a hassle to update. Easier to point to the app's website :)

good point - but i was looking to archive the App versions - v1.0 v1.1 ect as well as

for instance - take an app like rapidweaver - and do a history on the previous versions what's been added took away blinged up ect . as well as host the older versions too -

i have other ideas for them too but i can not go on about it just yet. :cool:
