>From what I've seen, they just provide a 'feed'.  Anyone in pronet can 
likely contribute an entry, doesn't look like code or zips are hosted on 6A. 
That's a great solution by me. ;)

Oh, and note every plugin page has the disclaimer:
"Disclaimer: Six Apart does not create or test these plugins and is not 
responsible for any adverse affects caused by their use."
(just fyi)

Also note some (many?  I dunno) of the top MT plugins require paid license 
(at least for commercial use...).

| Not to reply to myself here or anything, but perhaps what everyone would

| wherein a centralized official feed of recent plugins (and "Featured"
| plugins, as well) is available on their central server.  There's even a
| nice Atom feed showing the newest releases. Everyone else is pretty much
| operating off the ranch.

| Just 'cause they're the "competition" doesn't mean we can't "steal" good
| ideas from 'em.  In fact, I'd say it's a great idea.  *grin*
