Just a proposal of how to deal with the plug-ins' CVS issue: 1 - Wait until 1.2 has been released. 2 - Remove _ALL_ the plug-ins from GIMP's main CVS. 3 - Create a separate CVS containing _ALL_ existing plug-ins. 3 - Create a set of packages containing groups of plug-ins. My idea is creating a place where everyone who creates a plug-in can place his work. And not only his code, but also web pages, demos, tutorials, ... It should be open to any kind of plug-in, not only those found interesting for the mainstream. Somebody should also prepare packages of those plug-ins, so users can easily choose which ones they need; one of such packages will contain the basic plug-ins, and will be shipped with GIMP's main package.
