[ANN] PluginManagerBrainstorming: Please take a look at new idea for plugins registry

Hello All and specialy Chris Bartley,
I finished first part of authomatical place of all plugins for IntelliJ, as you can see.

Now, i have idea to authomatical XML generating for PluginManager writen by Chris Bartley (http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/PluginManager). This plugin allow great feature - to download plugins from www.intellij.org and others. But it has manual registry file - idea-plugins-registry.xml. Each development must edit it manualy.

Becose TWiki has powerfull search engine, i think that we can use it in building XML for PluginManager.

I try implement it and it work! :-).
I added new form - IntelliJPluginWebForm, and try use it on my SystemProperties example. So, i has results:
How look now my plugin with it form - http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SystemProperties
How look generated XML topic - http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/IntelliJPluginPackageXML

Let's go to discuss it, if you want, on Brainstorming topic for PluginManager: http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/PluginManagerBrainstorming

Thanks!

Ops...
So, i think it to hard to automatical retrive authors in this list (cos default WebForm not provide variable IntelliJPluginVendor). I guess we move to IntelliJPluginWebForm soon and i can show in this list authors correct.

Thanks!
