 Replying to [comment:4 westi]:
 > I'm not sure this is somewhere we want to go at the moment.
 Then why do you change the milestone then?

 > The idea behind have a centralised repository is that people can trust
 the content and security of it.
 Well, this won't remove the centralised repository (wordpress.org can run
 it as long as they want to), it will only add the options to add more
 and/or change to other repositories.

 > I would much rather people have the current hurdle of having to install
 a plugin in order to support upgrade/install from another location.
 Well, that's unrelated to this tickets topic. With or w/o multiple
 repositories you can do that with a plugin as well. '''But this ticket is
 specifically about the point to not do it via a plugin but in core'''.

 Next to that, the plugin idea is slightly misleading for the point that
 the current hardcoded repository imlementation offers no API for that.

 > '''''It is very unlikely that we would ever add a UI visible option for
 Well, a simple multi-line-text-box is enough for that. I do not see any
 problems to easily integrate that. If that's too much for the overall UI,
 please honot that there have not been made any concrete suggestions on how
 to implement that. A file and configuration directives can be usefull as
 well. There is no need to convert this ticket into a "should or shouldn't
 we add another option box for that"-discussion. I would rather love to see
 this tickets discussion is focussing more on how that new feature can be
 easily implemented.
