Just to announce the official 3rd party plugin repository:


Today the Nagios Plugin team are announcing that NagiosExchange.org  
(http://www.nagiosexchange.org) is the official repository for Nagios  
Plugins. While the core plugins will continue to be developed at  
Sourceforge (http://nagiosplug.sourceforge.net), NagiosExchange will  
be the central store for 3rd party plugins.

"This will allow more rapid development of plugins" explains Ton  
Voon, project lead for the Nagios Plugins. "There is a fantastic  
Nagios community who have been creating great features in their new  
plugins and submitting them for addition into our core package.  
However, we were finding that our project team was the bottleneck for  
distributing and making changes to their work. This move will free  
the community to develop and maintain their own code, independently  
of the Plugins team."

"With over 320,000 downloads and over 3,300 registered users since we  
launched 11 months ago, NagiosExchange is an established solution",  
says Julian Hein, Managing Director at NETWAYS GmbH who host the  
service. "They wanted something like CPAN (the Comprehensive Perl  
Archive Network) and part of its success was the creation of mirrors  
so we are proud to announce that we have setup our first mirror at  
http://nagiosexchange.altinity.org, donated by Altinity Limited. We  
hope the community will build on this and continue to make Nagios the  
best open source monitoring solution."
