Tim, and Nick:

I agree with the both of you on different points that you have made in this email...

I do believe that he timeout problem is something that needs to be dealt with right now and backported to Gramps-3.4.x...

I also do not install all of the plugins at the first time of installing the software!

I would like to have the option of downloading/ installing other add-ons at a later time...

Sincerely yours,
Rob G. Healey

Sorry, but I don't think it does work well enough already.

(1) If you don't have an internet connection, apparently start-up
hangs to 10 minutes. (I don't know this from personal experience
because I do have a connection, so this doesn't bother me).

(2) If you don't install a particular add-on the first time Gramps
starts and asks you, there is no way to do so later (unless the add-on
changes) because 'Check now'  only checks for New and/or Updated add-
ons. This does affect me, because I didn't chose to install ALL the
add-on when I first started, so now there is no way to get at the ones
I didn't install. I think this is a real problem, and I would love it
to be fixed!

The Plugin Manager 'Refresh Addon List' didn't work at all when i was
running trunk. Now I am running gramps34 branch, it has started
working, but I gather that this looks in a different place from the
Preferences 'Check now', so presumably won't give the same add-ons.
