A heads-up about TAR-uploading to Echidna:
If you are one of the users who expressed interest in that feature, then you probably know about this already.
If not, please be aware that there is an issue preventing us from accepting TAR files directly.
(It has to do with not having a "source" URL associated to the token, that Echidna can check.)
We are working with the people who planned to use TAR-upload, to either find a workaround or offer them an alternative way to publish their specs.
If you were looking at publishing this way too, and we have not talked to you already, please contact us :)
