provides web-based infrastructure to support collaboration, sharing, and

storage of multi-media using the Creative Commons licenses and metadata,

released a bugfix version 1.0.2 today. The primary features in this

packaging 
infrastructure. Bugfixes include:

About ccHost

The goal of this project is to spread media content that is licensed
under 
Creative Commons throughout the web in much the same way that weblogs
spread 
CC licensed text. ccHost is web-based infrastructure that may be used to
host 
and allow for commenting, remixing, and distribution globally. The more 
installations of ccHost and its variations, the more content there will
be 
available for enjoyment and artistic re-use in a sane and legal setting.
ccHost
is what is used for the infamous Creative Commons CC Mixter project which

supports legal media sharing and remixing. For more information, contact
Jon 
Phillips at jon {AT} creativecommons.org.
