Most of RoverDude's mods (UKS, Survival Pack, etc) seem to have disappeared from CKAN?

Yes, RoverDude has often expressed disdain for CKAN, and near as I can tell from this is that he has requested that his mods be removed. It's a new policy of the CKAN folks to remove a mod if the author wishes it.

If you want to continue using his mods you'll have to install them manually it looks like, at least for now. Good luck keeping them updated.

RoverDude had a specific objection to CKAN's policies, but that has since been addressed.  In any case, the metadata is still there.  @baldamundo could you provide more information about what version of KSP you're on and what mods you already have installed?  And be sure to refresh CKAN - it's easy to forget that the metadata might not be up to date if you leave it open.

I've started a new CKAN thread as a replacement for this one, now that I'm taking on the project leadership.  Please continue discussions there.

1.1.3. A few have reappeared (USI Tools, Regolith, Open Resource System Fork, Sounding Rockets, Community Resource Pack, Asteroid Day, Firespitter Core and Warp Drive), but things like UKS, Exploration Pack, Survival Pack etc are still missing. As for which mods I have installed...err, frankly too many to list, but the above aren't even showing up in the "Incompatible" list.

I belive that is due to a persistent bug in CKAN, as reported in new CKAN thread. Be patient until all dependecies are resolved, then it will be shown up again on CKAN.

Please, give us an "advanced gui".  You hold my hand far too much, and as great as the command line can be, having a list of checkboxes in advanced mode would be awesome.

I seem to have messed up CKAN for my mod All Y'All and I have no idea how to fix it. I misread the Spacedock "update your mod" page and somehow set the version to "KSP Version." It was like that for all of 10 seconds before I realized the problem. I updated again to the current version and put the correct number (0.4) in there, and then deleted the one with a version number of "KSP Version," but CKAN still erroneously thinks that the most recent version is "KSP Version" which is not available to download. So, people can't automatically update through CKAN.

That above paragraph pretty much sums up my total experience with CKAN. I don't use it myself and have no idea how it works. I don't know exactly how it got broken or how to fix it. Is there something I can do, or something someone else can do, to get rid of this incorrect version and fix me all up?

EDIT: I see there's a new thread. I'll post this there.
