I did a quick search in my personal mail archive archive, and I saw
that the distribution of plug-ins has been discussed several times on
this list.  Although the face-to-face meetings, private e-mails and
IRC sessions are not publicly archived, you can still find a lot of
stuff by looking in the archives of this list.

Here are some public archives:

You should look at the following discussions:
- From mid-October to mid-November 1999, subject "Plugins"
- End of January 2000, subject "Plugins at Sourceforge", with some i18n
  parts continued in February 2000.
- Mid-December 2000, subject "RFC: The future of The GIMP".  Several
  replies discussed the distribution of plug-ins.

Some very interesting points were brought up in October 1999 (look at
some messages from Sven and Marc).  If you intend to contribute to the
discussion about the distribution of plug-ins, you should definitely
read the archives so that we do not repeat the same things again and
