If anyone makes an addon, it needs to be vetted (for good and clean code, and for usefulness) prior to uploading - this is to keep the addons for this version "sane" unlike the addons that are being uploaded on a daily basis to the addons section by well meaning but misguided shopowners, which has done nothing more than to confuse the average shopowner.  If the addon is acceptable, great.  If not, recode it (or not).

Good move.  :thumbsup:

Bear in mind also, that making a modular system does limit the shopowner in what they can do (until they know how to get past the standard functions and extend it themselves), or pay a developer to extend it.  Does that matter ?  

I think for the long term well being of osCommerce, modular is the way to go.  That would allow so many more newcomers to get right along with their shop goals more easily, thus attracting that audience which I believe is important for osCommerce future.  If someone wants to delve into coding they can, or as mentioned hire a pro for specific work.

I apologize for the mistakes. If anyone find any others, please let me know. I will get them all applied and uploaded.

No need to apologize, if someone would just look at the enormity of what you work on and contribute here they'd have to conclude how could one NOT mix something up now and then in those thousands of lines of code.  Thanks so much for what you do.  :thumbsup:
