Plugins will be packed into 2 available packages. The first one will be a .zip which is a must and no question, and the other one is what you are voting on.
Using the 7-Zip SFX, WinRAR SFX, and .7z means that you will have to install everything manually. Using the NSIS Installer on the other hand, allows us to make an automatic installer that will install the plugin for you automatically, though their might be some things you have to do manually, like for example: the java servlets plugin needs an Environmental Variable defined, you have to do that yourself.
There are other ways but these are the best methods i know off right now.
Please make a vote as every vote count. We need to know before April 20th at most because we want to pack up Tomcat, Resin, and ActivePython using the new one.
The .zip package will include a READ ME.txt that will instruct you on how to install the plugin, and so will the other SFX packages.
Please note that if you vote for .7z, you will have to install the 7-Zip software before you can uncompress it.
