Posting executable files
Is posting of non-Orbiter-related executable files allowed?

So for the past few years, on and off (mostly off) I've been writing a railway signal simulator program, mostly just for the fun of it. I'd like to share this with the communities I am part of now, and because I received a little bit of help with one part of it from here. Does O-F have an official policy on users including executable attachments (inside a .zip file in this case), or links to executable files in posts especially when they aren't Orbiter-related? As a developer myself, I am fully aware of the caution required when doing so. Further, I'd like to note that I have no intention of using O-F to host this program for others, any sharing outside of O-F will be handled on those sites or from a generic file hosting site (I may go the latter route regardless). I simply wish to share something that may be of interest to the people on here.

Provided the executable you're uploading isn't malicious, which I'm sure it isn't, you're free to upload it here as an attachment; this might not be the most flexible solution for you, however.

Thanks, Xyon! I think I'll go with Google Drive anyways, but I'm glad to know I can post it here!

Well, as someone interested in the topic of that software, do share a link when it's ready
