Re: [Gimp-developer] [Gimp-web] Gitlab as a replacement for

Just a quick note for everyone (that either didn't attend LGM or didn't
hear the results of the conversation I had with Joao and Jehan)...

After some back and forth we are currently considering managing our own

list again when we have fleshed out some ideas a little further and start
soliciting some feedback/ideas.

Not to kick a week-old hornet's nest, but I'd like to point out that as a
looking for extensions/add-ons/scripts/etc, I find it much more convenient
download/clone a single script without being required to pull down a bunch
unrelated scripts as part of the same repository. This is even more the
case if
I happen to want to contribute code to that script.

Granted, perhaps there's a frontend that's developed which obfuscates or
otherwise diminishes the need to get all of the undesired scripts. But
the hassle (I have a few one-off scripts/add-ons for Blender on GitHub in
own repos), there are definitely some advantages for the people who aren't
primary developers.
