Not to confuse the topic any more but...isn't the "real" issue a lack of
consistency in the files (versions) of code being distributed and
downloaded? The source of the download itself is not the problem? Or
Point being, sites like mine (squatty.com) have been doing the tedious
job of searching for the latest releases (from the source) and then
either downloading or linking to them. For example, for Gplugs code, my
downloads link directly to the release in the Gplugs project.
Are you saying you want one and only one distributor? Or is a "mirror"

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
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
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
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
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
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
idea and I would have no problem with making the author the moderator.
Does that draw the distinction a bit better?
