Fair point. I had been thinking of the second version, though there is certainly room for both, though because of their different focus wouldn't be on the same page.
I hadn't realised until yesterday that there was "Eclipse Plugins Central", but as I pointed out in a previous e-mail there is no option to filter by targeted module (CDT for example), which I think would almost be more beneficial than duplicating specfic entries of the directory.

This would be good, though I am curious whether listing the fixes based on Bugzilla changes could be a first step? After that we can add a notice of who fixed, changed and added what. Generally in projects I have worked on anything that gets added or changed warrants any entry in the "bug" tracking system.
