Re: [Gimp-developer] Fwd: Gimp Registry Future

Can be taken - but a web(designer/developer) need good specs before
starting this task.

There are plenty of CMS'es on the wild - most of them with many ready-made
modules Joomla / Word Press/ CMSMS - they are the easy to implement (and
not hard to modify).

Drupal is solid and well documented for peoples who need to develop plugins
on their own - especially security things...

...but before any choice to be considered - a solid set of specifications
must be set
(I presume there is a kind of governance on Gimp Registry - which can
finalize this thing)

once the goal is point by point on paper - would be quite simple to choose
from already existing platforms.

Gimp Registry Future

Dear Registry Users,

I have maintained the registry for over 15 years now, and for the last
couple of years we have had an excellent team of co-maintainers who took
on a lot of the work. However, there are some much needed improvements
which are hard to carry out based on the current platform, and the work
due to abuse is growing. We cannot continue this on our own, unfortunately.

In particular, we really need better search and categorization
functionality, and would also like to integrate the registry more
tightly with The GIMP, such that downloading and installing plug-ins
becomes more straightforward. This new structure should also help combat
abuse much more effectively. This is no longer just a web-development
issue, but much more a plug-in development task.

Therefore, I would like to ask /you/ for some help with that.

Specifically, we need a plug-in which could access a back-end database
over the Internet, carry out queries, receive data in XML or JSON
format, download plug-ins, and install them automatically. Ideally, it
should also be able to display and acquire meta-data, such as ratings,
permissions required, etc.

Any takers?

cheers, Ingo
