I understand that this is not a right solution for most of the cases for uploading code to version control system, but can you think of uploading executables for encoder and decoder to repository. Maybe, they will be hosted on some file hosting with link
in the description. (probably they will update just on major changing).
Your project is actually used as a primary jpeg-xr codec so it could be useful people to have program instead of building it from sources.
I have work in progress with several projects having something to do with jpeg-xr and it would be extremely helpful if you made converting process simpler.
Thanks in advance,
