Our plan for 1.4 was to introduce a new plug-in distribution scheme
but not much has been done in this area yet. If the plug-in seems

I recommened having a look at the gimp-plugin-template module available
from CVS. It's a nice template for setting up the source tree for a
Gimp-developer mailing list
