[geeklog-devel] Consolidation of GPlugs and Geeklog.net

Ok, I read Tom's message and I want to make something a bit more clear.

The big problem I see with gl.net now is there are a few places you can go 
to get themes, plugins and other hacks other than gl.net.  That is what 
really needs to stop.  As noted, Blaine's file manager is being tweaked to 
better meet some of our needs (thanks Blaine).

Access to CVS, having a test bed is great but I still think that gplugs 
can do that.  However, I'd like to integrate gplugs and gl.net more (i.e. 
give gplugs the plugins.geeklog.net domain and link to it from gl.net 
where appropriate).  In fact, if it isn't in the works, I'd be willing to 
hack the file manager to include links to a file home page and to CVS.  
That way individual files are free to use the gplugs service or developers 
can use their own site.  The real benefit users would go once place to 
*find* this information.

I think adding support forums on gl.net for each 3rd party hack is a great 
idea and I would have no problem with making the author the moderator.

Does that draw the distinction a bit better?

                    harmlessly strange and sort of amusing. When you  
                    think about it, that might be a fair assessment."
