C'mon guys, sort this out. I don't visit the WP site that much, but I can seriously not remember it ever having a proper plugin library.
Sure, there is a codex wiki page full of plugins, and thats great, but the site states that there is a proper section coming very soon. This is evidently not the case.
I know the WordPress team must be very busy people, but you can't expect people to take a site seriously that makes promises of quick completion that are dead for months and months.
I have no problem with the codex plugin list; in fact, I like it, its extensive modifiable. I do, however, find the tone of 'Very very soon. We promise. In the meantime...' highly irritating. Wouldn't it be a better idea to remove this and have the codex as the official plugin list for the time being, with perhaps a unobtrusive message informing of the 'development' of a real plugin library, rather than have the site appear to be dead?
