[sword-devel] Remote Source Downloading

Greetings from a newbie module developer:
For me at least, developing a new Bible version is not a trivial task.
It may be years before it is ready for general review. In the meantime,
I would like to make it available to my alpha reviewers via Install
Manager with Remote Source Downloading.
I have researched the archives and have the following impressions:
SWORD requires an anonymous FTP server to publish modules for Remote
JSword requires an HTTP server to publish modules for Remote Source
Can someone please verify that my impressions are correct?
My current brain-dead web site (GoDaddy shared hosting) does not seem to
support anonymous FTP access. I have managed to get Remote Source
Downloading to work for Bible Desktop but not SWORD as a result. I will
obviously be looking for a new site with anonymous FTP support in the
future although that does not seem to be a feature that most internet
providers advertise up front. (I don't have the resources for a
dedicated server presently.) Meanwhile all of this leads to my next
question: Is there a way around the anonymous FTP restriction (besides
manual download and install of modules which I don't think many of my
reviewers can handle) for SWORD or any likelihood of HTTP support in
SWORD Install Manager in the future?
TIA for any information you can share.
