First of all, I would be more happy if finally someone (or better, a group 
of people) would show up who want to redo gimp.org. The web-site needs an
overhaul urgently and I don't think creating new gimp sites will help us
with this task.

The plug-in issue is special since we want to rethink the way plug-ins are
developed, maintained and distributed. The key for a new better plug-in
system is a description format for plug-ins that fulfills the needs of 
developers, webmasters and users. This issue should be discussed here on 
this list. I talked to Ingo, the creator and maintainer of the infamous 
plug-in registry, recently and he is willing to revamp the registry once 
we have settled on such a description format.

I heard several people have already made plans for a better plug-in system
but I'm still waiting for this ideas to show up here.

Noone can stop you from doing gimp.t.o, but in a perfect world, you'd 
better put that energy into gimp.org. Just my 2 cents.

Salut, Sven
