Hi all

I had a look at the qgis2google plugin. It seems a great addition and also has 
a good potential for the future ( <dream> full KML export considering legend 
groups as folders and possibility to specify extrusion values for layers or 
from attribute values </dream> ). 
Looking at the QgsKmlConverter class, it seems to me that single symbol and 
unique value from old symbology are supported. Are there any plans to support 
symbology-ng too?
Alexander, would you be available to maintain the plugin?

Didn't try the OTB plugins yet, but I heard it contains a very powerfull set 
of tools. Seems OTB has some additional dependencies, so optional compilation 
would be good for it (similar to GRASS plugin). And we would need a maintainer 
from the OTB team to include it into trunk.
