[Suggestion] Remove Swifty

I think we should remove Swifty support. Earlier today someone tried to connect, failed (no mods), came back later with Swifty, connected and got wrong signature files. I felt real bad for the guy, and the amount of wasted effort he went through. 

Generally, I think the payoff for its "easability" isn't worth it. I don't know of any teamspeak regulars who have it, and that's key because I can help easily with arma3sync - I know diddly squit with Swifty. 

That's why I think it's best to remove it.

This was happening to me a couple of days ago. No matter what I did trying to fix it Swifty never seemed to actually change anything, just spent a couple of hours checking files over and over.
I uninstalled it and did the process over with Arma3Sync and even though it's a little more complicated it worked perfectly and took less time than messy with Swifty.

Could the people with Swifty installed please confirm that their repo is still broken as of this minute?
It seems like the repos were corrupted last week which is sadly no rare occurrence for A3Sync either, except that people report it quicker.

Based on the lack of replies I don't think anyone is even using it.

When I used Swifty to try and install the repo, all I had was problems so I switched to ArmA3Sync and ArmA3Sync worked fine.

Confirmed. My observation is, that Swiftify has issues maintaining what is downloaded, and issues with checksums.

A Modset downloaded with Arma3Sync checks out well, but it was unable to get itself out from an infinite loop where it just kept finding mismatch, and downloading the same few files over and over again, but the mismatch was still there.

The ramp-up time, and dependencies are tough enough for a unit-radius player for TWC already, adding a not always reliable (however nice) tool on top of that might scare people away.

Arma3Sync is reliable, and nice. One step ahead could be a launcher, which is fine-tuned to get always the most fresh state from the Arma3Sync repositories, to further decrease the effort, but one general-purpose loader is more than enough, and Arma3Sync seems to be a reliable tool.
