I think ReactOS site should have application download center for RAPSS. This center is hosting RAPSS informations and binaries. The ReactOS members should upload software. I would like RAPPS informations aren't existing the source code. When we will decide them, I will working this.

The way RAPPS works:

1) Each software has a TXT file with the name, description and the link to the binary file and is compressed into a 69KB CAB fie
2) RAPPS, when you first launch it, downloads this CAB file and extracts it and list the available programs
3) RAPPS then downloads the file and launching the installer. Nothing more, nothing else

It just downloads the file and launches the installer. Quite simple. The user can download their own programs via Firefox in ReactOS or transfer it in manually.

This would cause serious liability issues for ReactOS organization, and would require an immense amount of labour to maintain.
And a security nightmare.
