Hi Roshan,

I'm glad to see interest in the Plugin Repository project. Your  
proposal shows a good understanding of the project but I would like  
you to elaborate on some of the ways the repository and administrative  
utility would function.

I would like to see a basic design/outline of the repository and some  
ideas on how it would operate in your proposal, instead of during  
"Phase 1." Phase 1 can be the final design plan where you figure out  
exactly how everything is going to function and work, after you've had  
a chance to get more intimate with the Geeklog codebase.

So that should give you something to work on :) Take some time to  
think about my suggestions and send us an updated revision.
