Hmm... sounds sensible. Unless somebody comes up with something better
I'll start it in a week or so.

My idea is to copy the full cvs tree of gimp to (lets call it gimpforge)
and give any intersted plug-in author write access.

Updates from the gimp-cvs-tree/{libgimp,app,tools...} to gimpforge should
be automatic and regular, while updates in the other direction should be
enabled for specific files (plug-ins/common/snoise.c) or subdirectories
(e.g. plug-ins/perl).

That will effectively implement some kind of access-model, and it will
(hopefully) make it possible to *select* a fileset for distribution.
