Exactly, I'll be glad to see that. In main repository there are
several great plugins but the list is cluttered with others,
experimental or not usable by wide audience.
The server-side implementation should be fairly simple, a matter of
new flag indicating whether the plugin is "official". The
administrator would explicitly decide which plugins are official and
from that the web application will generate two different lists.
Gary, please could you look at this?
