Okay one more :) http://wonderwinds.com/plugin_readme_writer.txt will, if you save it as whatever_you_like.html and run it locally or on your server, write a rather nice README.html file that plays well with [url=http://b2evo.astonishme.co.uk/bopit]BOPIT[/url]. And what could possibly be more important than a README file that plays well with BOPIT :)
That, by the way, is really only going to be of any real use for the casual plugin author. Someone who came up with something and sort of knows they should have a readme but doesn't feel like figuring out how to make a nice one. For those out there who write a lot of plugins, and especially those who tend to update their plugins, you'll be better off waiting for the most awesome plugin ever to plugin to a plugin.
That's right folks: I'm writing a plugin that writes readmes for plugins. It's first test is to write it's own readme. If it can do that then it can do yours. And it will remember all the bits you put in your plugin. And you'll be able to edit them. And you'll be able to update (meaning easily add a new release number) them. And you'll be able to tell it to write your readme. Neato eh?
