The value of BeBits was the presentation of all available applications for BeOS in one repository well after the demise of Be Inc. website.
Similarly, the value of Haikuware for Haiku (and some Zeta).
There were also comments, notes, and tips for some of these applications.
Unfortunately, the disappearance of these sites and non-accessibility on the WayBack Machine due to the enabling of anticrawling robotexts may be damaging to the cause by giving the impression that there are essentially no applications available for Haiku.
Those of us of are very familiar with BeOS/Haiku will either have had downloaded the desired applications, or know of other ways to get them. This is not necessary the case for one who has just found out about Haiku and wishes to explore further.
Should Haiku host such repository? Should another individual or organization do this?
