To date we've been looking at source code configuration systems to help us maintain our system installations.  This approach effectively remembers what you have checked out allowing you to 'update' your installations.
What about the reverse perspective, how can get we request from the PmWiki core a list of all installed plug-ins - perhaps a plug-in registration mechanism?
A single Wiki page could be configured to report the system configuration.
Any ideas on how this can be achieved over and above {$Version} for PmWiki core?

I agree... in fact, maybe Patrick should switch pmwiki to subversion as
well? That's totally up to him of course, and pmwiki is so stable now that
many of the reasons for using subversion probably doesn't apply in case.
But it might be useful?
