Running Orchard on AppHarbor

Hi all - so I really need some feedback here.  This post just showed up on my feed reader in the orchard blogs http://support.appharbor.com/kb/tips-and-tricks/running-orchard-on-appharbor.  In it, one of the main instructions is to install the orchard s3 storage provider that I wrote months ago.  This kind of freaked me out, because I really have no idea if it even works for people.  I wrote it, tried it out really quick for my own personal use, seemed to work, and published it.  The ONLY feedback I got was one person commented in the gallery that it took their whole system down.  Due to the lack of any confirmation/positive feedback, I unpublished it from the gallery.

All that said, is anyone using this module successfully?  If so, I can re-publish it. I'm just very nervous now that it's being publicly recommended by AppHarbor.

I think you should republish it, as obviously it works for some people. This is all open source, so I think people will understand if they need to tweak the code for their own usage. It certainly is better than nothing, especially if you put in some disclaimers about the limitations of your work.

I can't!  The gallery is throwing an error when I try to republish it: http://i.imgur.com/EvA4D.png

I think I'll have to delete your entry manually in the DB.

Hi, 

Sorry for the long delay. I cleaned up the database tables to wipe out all traces of your module. Can you try to republish it now?

Thanks for your patience,
Bertrand
