OT, but related :)
I would appreciate a field more in Metadata... a maintainer(s) optional
section. It's not strictly necessary because of trac, but a lot of time the
first Author of the plugin is disappeared or can't invest time in the
plugin, but she(he) still receives issues or mails from users.
regards, Luigi Pirelli
