Has anyone put together a master download of all or a lot of the items on this site? Would that be very hard to do?

I'm guessing for e-Sword 9-10, we have 30-40 gigs of resources. That would be an unmanageable/unrealistic download on many connections. Worse, installing every resource for e-Sword that exists on this website would slow e-Sword to a crawl.


We've discussed creating Bundles before, organized by category, like "Greek Exegetical Commentaries" or "Homiletic Commentaries" or "Baptism Resources". The ways of dividing and categorizing bundles is almost infinite.


It also means the bundles have to be maintained going forward.


The (current version of the) software we use on this website (IPBoard) is at the end of it's life span. The current version we are using is quite dated. When I upgrade this software, much of the Downloads section and the front page functionality will no longer work.  I'll have to restructure the front page and Downloads section in the new IPBoard software, making my code work with their new software. 


I'm thinking I'll revisit basic/simple bundles then, when I redesign the front page. I hope to simplify the front page and make it easier (less overwhelming) for new people. But even then, there won't be a 20 gig download package. It doesn't make sense.

Thanks for the reply. I had no idea there was that much content for e-sword.
