Do they allow you to submit the code? Do they verify that your name is
nowhere in the code and there is no way to identify you from the

Demos will never be really anonymous, IPOL admins will always need to
know who put this code online (legal responsibility of the internet
publisher / hosting provider). What IPOL could do is act as a proxy
and provide a service where IPOL guarantees that the author name is
not publicly available.

In the (veeery) long term, the correct solution would be that every
editor and conference manager has its own service with online demos in
addition to a code and data repository.
