jreichen suggested I drop in on this thread because I raised the issue on the Hardware forum about starting a wiki that could encapsulate/organize the wealth of information on hardware configuration, issues and gotchas, etc.

It sounds like this thread is talking about doing something similar on the plugin front. Which I think is a great idea.

Is there any chance that we could work together to set up something that would be a community-supported site intended to organize all the information out there about Sage, from the program itself, the alternative UIs, plugins, hardware, etc? I'd certainly be willing to pitch in on such a thing. Even to the extent of contributing a basic hosted site to get things rolling.

I help maintain a Joomla site and have set-up/maintained Drupal as well. I'm sure it could be done in those systems, but I think that something like GForge or FusionForge are better platforms as they are more targeted to the task. Plus, Joomla and Drupal have a bit of a learning curve--not quite as much when you get to the editor/maintainer level, but some people will have to work the admin side. On the other hand, Joomla is probably more common for a hosting company to have available in case things have to be migrated to another server for some reason.

A hosting company? Why not just run it in someone's basement? Well, I've done that and hosted web/email/DNS/etc. services for various non-profits for several years. It was expensive especially with redundant Internet links and servers, but it was my hobby, so didn't mind. When I moved, I gave it up and helped people migrate to professional hosting sites because the only high-speed Internet I could get at any reasonable cost was Comcast. These days, sure, I could stick a server in the basement fine, but would people trust some dude with a server in his basement enough to seriously consider moving their repositories, wikis, forums, email lists, etc. to it? People have got to want to use it and comfortable that it's not just a "here today, gone tomorrow" thing to make it successful...

I wonder how many plug-in developers are interested in a full-featured site like this?

Just my 2 cents .
