Yahoo now blocks anonymous access to the "vault".

If the sandbox is used, the submission should still be in an archive file
(Zip, Tar/GnuZip, Tar/Bzip, etc.), but in a separate part of the sandbox.
It should not be lumped with all the miscellaneous code files. We could set
up a new root-level directory and put the archives there. Is anonymous
access activated for the sandbox?

Maybe we could use some part of our SourceForge web space?

For the sandbox or web space, the Review wizard should upload the file
there, so we don't have give write-access to every submitter.
