A zip with all the current plugins, maybe do a monthly update or something...
but really, Some people just dont WANT to download the plugins they WANT one by one, like me, some people want to just download EVERYTHING and choose from their hard drive...

Think you can do it?

This had been discussed before, but I can't remember the main arguments to this. I think they were basically saying that it would be really hard to keep updating it, although once a month doesn't sound too bad. And that the file size would just be huge, and since most pople aren't using broadband it wouldn't get D/Led much. Like I said, I can't remember, but anyhoo, it got voted down.

Still, they could make one zip for each section or something, it beats having to download em 1 by 1

Hmm, I think the system as it stands right now is ideal, because it allows users to download only the plug-ins that they want, and it'll probably keep bandwidth congestion to a minimum. If you clump every plugin from a particular category into one single zip file, that'll mean 2 things: 1) the resultant zip file will be mondo huge; 2) it'll probably result in 'hotspots' when everyone will be trying to download stuff at the same time, causing extreme congestion.
