Sounds perfect. Works for me ! And should keep things nice and neat here. I hear ya about being busy, I'm also crazy at work and it IS the silly season ! (where Live is crazier than normal !).

Are you thinking just a FTP site for everything where people go in and browse content?
It also means that there's a quick way for users to just get at the files using FTP if they want to.
I'll try a few things on a copy of the site to make sure things work as they should.
Work is pretty manic over the next couple of weeks but I'll get on it as soon as I can bit by bit.
I should have SOME time to sort through all the apps ths weekend to see what we have all together right now (between newfiend and my personal stash) so we have a very solid staring point. Just a LOT of apps that we need to go through.
Just let me know what you need from me
Agreed, in no way possible is this a 1 person job. I agree we need a few people to take this up or a small team to work on it, I don't see a BILLION apps coming in but, for a while with the amount of apps we have found there will be a lot of testing/reviewing of apps for a while.jachin99 wrote:David, this looks good to me. Something to consider is this whole thing is going to be a kind of living document for a while, I.E. we will start off with a bunch of plugins we know nothing about, and hopefully end up with as many plugins working correctly as possible. You need to be able to make changes to the plugins center as these changes occur so having a good workflow, and documenting it as things change will help keep everyone focused, and updated. It might also be a good idea to do a little Dev recruiting, OR find a few people who want to learn how to make changes to plugins so that they can make them work. This way there could be roles like Tester, Dev, Fixer, Etc.
I really hope the upload section can provide some of the rare ones that we could use. As if you look over the old TGB on the way back time machine site.... There are a lot of odd apps that I have not seen in years...
