I like the idea of "editions" (I would actually rather call them bundles) more than standalone applications - TW is awesome because it can do pretty much everything, so restraining one app to one specific purpose would be more of a hindrance than anything, to me at least... Although it may be different for the less-tech-inclined average user. It would be great if there are "fit for specific purpose editions" but I do > not think that should be our focus.

This would allow to 1. centralize all plugins and bundles and 2. manage dependencies (this plugin/bundle needs these other plugins etc.). The one included right now is very limited (and has very few plugins). Le mercredi 11 avril 2018 07:16:37 UTC+2, Mat a écrit : > > From a marketing point, TW suffers from being too general.
