Did you really? I had no idea. I'm flattered. :)

I've thought for the last couple of years at least that your site was
more complete than my list, and it's got that lovely search tool, too.
My list was handy when your site didn't exist, but I have no need to
compete. It never occurred to me that people might still be interested
until someone asked me if I'd updated it lately. Then they wanted to
know why not, and I referred them to your site.

I suppose it's still useful if anyone wants on offline reference and,
as I said, if enough people ask I'll update and find a way to
distribute. So far, only two people have asked (and I think one
thought I was offering actual updates to the plugins, not to a PDF
document). I'm betting most people are getting their information from

If you're sure you trust me in your database then, sure, I'm willing
to give updating things a shot (although I warn you, it'll probably be
about as timely as my original update was ...). At the least, one of
us needs to update the ones that are no longer available, such as
Bruce Foster's plugins ...

I'm not really a database jockey, though, and I've never made a web
site, so I hope you have good documentation somewhere!
