    initial v1  
    22> The database and the plugin have been pretty stable for several years, so I felt no need to improve them. Many people in HOT and in the Russian community use the plugin. You can see their offsets and the data at http://offsets.textual.ru/

    4 I meant maturing of the idea, not the software. There are several issues I can see, especially regarding permissions and malicious users which aren't addressed yet. These will come with a bigger userbase. Also there are mirrors and imagery updates and some other points which aren't taken care of. It works without, but a mature solution would address them - so how complicated our imagery database became over the time even if the minimum is still only name, type and url ;-)

    66> I am all for including the plugin in the core. Not sure if it should be restricted to experts: clicking the "download offsets" button should be the first thing everyone does after adding an imagery layer. Still, even the expert-only mode is better than having to install the plugin separately.
