Module Name - The Curve
Not a real issue per say however would "Extensions" be a more appropriate name for our release module. While not important really, just a thought. Releases is only a part of the functionality.
Long term it would be nice to be able to offer a marketplace for commercial extensions. Basically we hook some form of payment processor to the release module. We allow commercial developers to sell their modules on our community site. Charge processing fee whatever the processors fees are plus a small % maintenance fee.
Using Paypal as an example " 2.9% + $0.30 USD per transaction", if someone listed a module at $14.99usd Paypal would charge about 0.74 cents so before our own fee the amount is down to $14.25 if we had a hosting and maintenance fee of 5% our fee would be about 0.75 cents leaving $13.50 to send to the commercial developer.
So what does the user experience? Basically they click buy, enter their PayPal info or pay with credit card (still processed via PayPal but doesn't require them to have an account) they get sent to their download which is unlocked when payment is processed. So besides entering payment info not much different from "normal" download experience.
