Remository
I've used Remository for many years and upgraded to the latest version after migrating my site to Joomla v2.5.8 I did a test download and when done Remository posts a google ad in the middle of the page. Sorry, I don't mind adverts but that is a bit too much "In your face" and intrusive.

Pity not to understand the situation *before* writing a review! The user is free to configure what is shown during download. See replies to other reviewers, or the Remository forum. But the fact that many users retain the sample adverts supports the project and is a factor in Remository remaining free!

SP Upgrade
Compared to my previous attempts with another well documented component SP Upgrade came up trumps with no real issues. Okay, some of my modules and templates didn't transfer over but I knew that because they were not 2.5 items. However I don't think that's an issue as I can install the latest (2.5) versions and rebuild that. I was more concerned with getting all my articles and members database transferred, hey presto! Job done. Forget the one with zero support, spend the cash on this and you won't look back. I'm told the component support is very good but I didn't need to ask them, neither should you if you read the user guide and many tutorials out there.
One thing, the images file doesn't (didn't) transfer. but it's a simple matter of copying the contents over in cPanel.
Just going through the process of re positioning my modules to fit the new template I have and pointing the menu items to my new top menu then it should be ready to launch.

jUpgrade
jUpgrade used to work right 'out of the box' but it no longer does. The component hangs at "Migrating undefined" and progresses no further. The developers no longer offer support on their forum. Support is only available if you pay.

I have upgraded several websites from J1.5.26 to 2.5 but with a combination of J2.5.4/6 and jUpgrade 2.5.0/1 updates something has become broken. It's a shame that the developers don't seem too interested in a very long thread on their forum either.
Now for a search for an alternative.

JoomSport
I like this component. I like it a lot! Unfortunately, there is no scope ( unless I've missed it somewhere) for bonus league points as are awarded in Rugby Union. Okay you can allocate 4 for a win, 2 for a draw but Rugby requires 1 bonus point for either scoring 4 or more tries, or losing by a margin of 7 points or fewer. If this can be included in the component I will definitely use it.
Keep up the good work.

Community Builder
Excellent component, infinite number of configurable fields. So now I have the database and some test users registered. So How do I get in the region of 800 members from Excel via CSV to the database?

CB Juice doesn't work for me for some reason.

My fields are identical to the ones in the Excel file (I made sure of that) but juice keeps showing errors.
Come on CB incorporate an easy upload data feature and I will be able to say CB is Excellent in every way.
