I'm also in favour of adding more python plugins to the repository (e.g. fTools and geoprocessing). Requirement is that a plugin is of general interest and that the author agrees to maintain the plugin.

In the few seminars I've done, my lesson #1 is "Adding Basic Plugins".
With the new plugin installer, beginners have to scroll thru the long -
and ever growing- list of plugins (which, of course is a good thing!) to
find and add one or two additional basic tools. I'd just as soon have
fTools available by default, like Delimited Text, SPIT, etc.
