Re: [Gimp-developer] Limiting Plug-Ins

Where would be the wisest place to intervene in the code to limit the
extensions?  Basically, I will just check to see if the extension
matches a certain list of permitted extensions.

I would guess somewhere in config/gimppluginconfig.c or plugin/gimpplugin.c?

Thanks for all your help,

What is the best way to constrain the filetype plug-ins available to
the end user?

Depends on how elaborate you want this to be:

- removing the plug-ins is one option
- restricting access to them with ACLs or file permissons is another
- moving them to different folders and then doing the same as above is yet
another option
- moving them to different folders and then distributing different
configurations according to users groups (e.g. is yet another

I've been looking around the plug-ins folder but am not sure whether
this is my best place to intervene.

Depends on which of the options above make you go "how...?" or "ah, of
course...!", respectively.
