Subject Re: making plugins (plugins portlet) more visible in the console
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2008 02:56:42 GMT
Yeah, but until plugins built on earlier releases (like 2.1) work on 
later maintenance updates (like 2.1.1 and 2.1.2) and we fix the 
currently broken 2.1.1 plugin repo, I don't think we really want to 
over-hype this feature....
