my two cents about...
Please look at the current addon site, how many "Requirements" you can find that are not true, only half-true, completely outdated or ...? And no, not all the pluigns with this wrong requirements are old.
Someone ask for an example?
http://addons.miranda-im.org/details...ewfile&id=3037 (only work on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 ???)
http://addons.miranda-im.org/details...ewfile&id=3694 (Requirement + Description=confusing)
http://addons.miranda-im.org/details...ewfile&id=4036 (Where I can download Miranda 0.7???)
This 4 plugins from the current 20 Top Downloads have ugly requirements=20% => About 3000 plugins overall = 600 plugins with ugly requirements. o_O
If I assume that all this text come from an author, no offense, but no thanks if the authors should fill this fields.
I don't know the reasons why 600 plugins have ugly requirements or dependencies, but don't tell me it's not true!
And please don't tell me that everything will get better in the future!
*YOU*, yes I mean YOU, would you do this? Can I see YOU in this team 2011? Would YOU install Clist_x and Message-Window_Y to see if a new plugin works?
Be serious, someone have any good experience with volunteers here, especially if they MUST do something?
I think that's the only possible way, but I haven't any idea how.
But on the other side, don't forget how important are correct requirements and "Not work with...", we can't await that any new user search around in the forum, the wiki or the IRC channel.
Miranda stay and fails with correct working plugins.
