I think the structure of these support pages is a bit difficult when it comes to find what and how many plugins are there (did I totally miss it or there's no such thing?).
I'm a newbie to WordPress and my site is still under construction, I've many ideas but I don't wish to reinvent the wheel, so I think it would be nice to see all plugins listed as subcategories.
To announce a new plugin to the community, each maintainer should sticky-post the manifest. Related discussions could then follow in the same subcategory or, even better, ordered as "requests", "comments", "hacks", "howto" and so on.
What's your opinion?
