What about using a distribution system like helix-updater (or newer
We can use a machine (i.e: plugins.gimp.org) where gimp itself (or
gimp-udater) retrieves a xml list from(http), with all the plugins stored in the
"system". The "system" can store a lot of precompiled plugins, with version
numbers, priority for upgrading , etc....
Also a good interface for maintaners, to upload new versions is
required and maybe a main coordinator....
