Using the latest dev package it came with a lot of other little extensions for Ccomments like Hikashop - CComment, K2 Plugin - CComment, and many more. I love having lots of choices, but not everyone uses those extensions (I don't use Hikashop). Yes I can easily uninstall them, but after each upgrade it might get annoying. So here's what I'm proposing:

Have a package for the main Ccomment component (just like it is right now for the stable release), and then have a download section called Ccomment extensions. Kinda like what Joomgallery does except keeping the main Ccomments download accessible (like it is now).

This also goes for the K2 extension, not everyone uses K2. Unless of course it would be difficult to have it outside the package. ;)

In the past I wanted to create my own extension manager for CComment. you know - you install the base, then you go to components -> ccomment and install whatever plugin you need. This was in the past. Now I really think that it is best having everything in the code and installing it all at once. The plugins are all turned off per default so they don't consume any resources or whatever. If you need them you just go around and click on publish.
I agree - not all people will need the plugins, but let us imagine the other situation -> where we have people that need them. So if you install just a core package without the plugins now you have to go around and search for them, download them, install them, enable them... So it can take you a lot of time to enable and configure everything. Where if they are distributed with the core - it is all there.

So there are prons and cons to both approaches...

Not sure if it would be too much work, but perhaps have a core package and a extension version with core. Again, if it is a lot of extra work; don't worry about it.
