Hi all,
what about setting up an Internet service to find, download and
install plugins directly from audio applications?
Maybe a library can be developed to do this, containing all the needed
stuff to properly interface with the packaging system of each
distro/OS (or in case there aren't any, download the source and tell
the user to compile it) and maybe also downloading the packages
directly from the repository of the given distro (or the official
source tarballs).
What do you think about it? Is it feasible?
Just my 2 cents.
