Konstantin Obenland just posted an update about the plugin directory redesign. Basically, if you haven’t looked at the new proposed design yet, now is the time if you want to have any say in the choices being made. Do note, however:
Please keep in mind that it is by far not a finished product. There is still a lot of work to be done, mainly around front-end technology, search, and developer facing interfaces. Every decision that has been made so far is up for discussion, which is the purpose of this post.
So, log in with your WordPress.org credentials here and check out the new admin interface as well the new plugin page. Check out the open tickets before you create a ticket, but by all means, create tickets and start discussing.
