Most of facepunch’s members identify the problem with current state of addons.
First it was bad implementation with all “merge with /garrysmod/”.
Now the state of developing the “necessary” addons to have fun in garrysmod is becoming the problem.
You have garrysmod.org, and numerous SVN repo’s.
You have primary developers and “stealers” who come and change info.txt and a few files to make it look like they’ve done something.
People constantly renaming and spamming addons to garrysmod.org, making a fuzz of the actual searching of proper addons.
I’m trying to show a direction here, garrysmod “modding” community should start unifying the directions&rules of publishing. And start to create a strong clear community and transparent list of project owners and primary repositories to help people who still would like to stay on the player side and not on google-dork hunting the proper addon versions.
