I have updated that wiki page, hopefully making it more clear what
functionality should the new repository offer. In summary these are
the main proposed improvements:
- user logins from osgeo ldap
- easier uploading of plugins (no manual setting of versions etc.)
- more owners for one plugin
- changelogs for new versions
- counting of downloads
- simple online portal for viewing plugins
- trusted/untrusted users - to make it more complicated to publish
plugins with malicious code
- rewrite to Django - potentially larger group of devs being able to
maintain the application than with Ruby on Rails

The feature set is open for the discussion, anyway I would like to
keep the number of features as low as possible for first version.
Volunteers are welcome to start coding :-)
