I have released a 1.0.1 with the logo and settings in order to change the color of the text for the description.
I used the last logo since I made the change the day before yesterday, but I am totally OK to change for any of the other if people want t.
@anarchintosh and @PatK, thanks for your logos guys, I really appreciated it!

Don't know if you noticed, but the plugin is having some conflict with some descriptions and the color code it's showing, like this:
And anyway I think although the option to change color for the description is nice, that's more in the skin side.
Also, my knowledge of python and plugins/scripts is pretty basic, but it seems a piece of code of the addon if interfering with the skinning code of some views/labels. It seems you coded for the name to be bolded and the description not, but if the skinner has coded the ListItem.Label to be bolded then the codes conflict, like this:
Anyway I would be nice if instead of the description being fetched through ListItem.Label would be through ListItem.Plot. Also the first repository is getting this bold error if you don't use bold at skin label.
So to sumup, no color and bold, and the description to ListItem.Plot, and I'm just suggestion/asking for.
And for the addon, what about this image for fanart?
Last, just an idea, what about repo icons? maybe add them to the wiki and fetch them from there or include them in the addon, don't know which is the best and simpler way, but it would be nice.
I think that's, if this things are added/modified and the addon is perfect to me.

Nice work. Any chance of an 1920x1080 for use as desktop background?

what about adding icons for the repos?
could add an extra column to the table with links to icons
also, perhaps description should just go in the listitem description field?
i'll update the wiki page today and see if i can patch your code to support my wiki page update.
sorry if this breaks support for a few hours!

Thanks very much for the feedback, it is really helpful.
Concerning the bold and color, I didn't realized it could have been a conflict with some skin, the reason why I did is is because:
- I coded that quickly last weekend and it was easy and fast to do this way (I am not saying it is the best way)
- Since it is a progam addon, it does not work as a video addon so when I set the addon item info such as plot and title, it does not display when I press info (I am usually setting the info for a video addon) .
I asked on the developer section, and apparently it is like that for the program addon.
The only way to display the info is either like I did or I have to create a WindowXML that will be called and display the info (like nuka did with the SVN Repo Installer). The only problem with this option is that won't match to the design of the skin (little bit like a script if you want).
But if you know another way, please let me know I would love to do it.
What I can do for not is:
- removing the bold on the title
- making optional the description as part of the title
- making optional the color on the description in the title
- set the item info in case some skin supports it (if it is the case please let me know which one so I can test)
- add KiSUAN's fanart, is it the one you post earlier?
- I can totally add the icon if the URL is available in the wiki, it could be embedded in a image tag, in order to be displayed in html, it shouldn't be an issue to retrieve it.
I will probably to do that over the weekend, earlier if I can (or part of it)
Any other suggestion?

BTW about the repo icons, some of the repositories does not have one, but in this case we will display the default one, that's not a big deal.

i updated the wiki page
also, i was thinking that it should auto-install the passion xbmc repo, because thats where it gets it's updates from.
perhaps there should also be an 'Install all repositories' item as well?
this thread should really get stickied, and the old '[Collection] Additional Addons Repositories (Unofficial/Third-Party/Developers Repos)' unstickied.

anarchintosh Wrote:also, i was thinking that it should auto-install the passion xbmc repo, because thats where it gets it's updates from.I can add it as a default option, so we won't force anybody to have passion-XBMC repo
anarchintosh Wrote:perhaps there should also be an 'Install all repositories' item as well?That's a great idea, especially that doesn't heart since XBMC allow to enable/disable the installed repositories
