Use DropBox to distribute new apps to multiple Macs
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Oct 19, '09 09:22:16AM

The reason for this is that, unfortunately, DropBox does not properly sync resource forks, extended attributes, etc. The DropBox development team has patched in some temporary fixes for the worst effects of this lack of proper Mac supportósuch as package files turning into mere foldersóbut many things still break. Until DropBox provides full support for the HFS+ file system's features, users should expect to run into problems with files that make use of HFS+ features, such as application package files. The best way to make sure your files pass through DropBox unscathed is to put them into a .zip file or a disk image before putting them into your DropBox folder.
