as the title says - could we have a clean zip? I dont want to have to remove the mac os x cruft (or to even download it) from a zip after downloading. Thanks.

Re: source code zip - a little bit more effort please? No MacOSX cruft

Sorry. I'm guessing that on MacOS these files are hidden, in much the same way as Thumbs.db on Windows or dot directories on Linux so people just don't notice. I'll mention it to my editor but I expect there'll be times people just forget about things they can't see.

I do notice. And i'm on mac os x! I unzip from the command line, and see all that stuff coming out... :-\r

As for your editor forgetting... u mean u're not the one generating it? Couldnt u simply do so?
