          My thoughts:

          • Slaves can be transient, so firewall rules might not let them access an external site directly.
          • It might be nice to hook this into the artifacts system so you could re-upload something if hockeyapp isn't available the moment you do the build (without re-running the entire build). That would also point to having the upload occur from master.

          Uploading from slave would allow distribution of load and potentially preserve available bandwidth from master, though that's unlikely to be the bottleneck in my opinion.

          Why not option for both??
          Default to have it go from Slave (since it's doing the building and if it builds, it should upload), but allow for override to go from server for case where firewall rules cause hurdles.

          Is this still something for consideration? I note this is quite an old item. If not I'll close this in a week.

          No response. Will look into this again in the future. For now closing.
