Good point, GitHub is a good place for open-source projects, what Salamander SDK is!

Id' suggest moving there documentation, header files, and upon release, you will add binaries (salrtd9.lib, *.dll, *.pdb). Moreover there should be one repository for shared headers, and separate repos for demo plugins.

I see at least these benefits:
- community can see a progress in development, how much of the most wanted features has been implemented (mostly Unicode support),
- feedback from the community, reviews, discussions, tracking issues,
- community will help you with translating documentation (API is still mostly documented in Czech language),
- as this is a public repository, it is free of cost.

BR,
Vilo
