This looks like it could be useful when complete. However, I'm worried that it might quickly get to be out of date. Maybe changing "latest version" to "applies to version" and change "last updated" to "table last updated" or something, because I doubt somebody will notice every update of every plugin in this table and update this page. Maybe you'd want to add some features of each, like placeholders, expression support for the templates, etc. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 14:56, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
- In an ideal world, the last version should be fetched automatically, but I doubt it could be possible. So I agree we'll have to find another solution. We may also need more space for the /unique/ features (see the mess I've introduced w/ mu-template)

I agree on sort them alphabetically, which I will now do. Not having auto-updates of each of these entries is definitely a problem, especially as some of them have regular changes. --Cometsong (talk) 09:00, September 21, 2012 (UTC)
