Thx for the feedback Jeremy.
As for the plugin mess, they current situation needs some fixing, and
the extra GIE package does not help at all. I'll try to come up with a
better download page though, to see if that helps. But i very much doubt
it. Users just want to download 1 setup.exe or whatever and be done with
Also mind that on Linux, we don't have an automated installer. RedHat
has fixed this issue by providing Abi and the plugins all in just 1 RPM.
And I can't see anything wrong with that. I've seem many happy users
because of that rpm already.
As for the docs, with the current situation we have lots of releases
that don't include docs. If the build process just fails on it, we
_have_ to fix it. Now we seem to just skip it most of the time.
Moreover, distro's do what they please. I doubt for example that debian
includes our docs, since they are not forced to include them.

I certainly will not. I don't claim my view/ideas are perfect in any
soft of way.
