Installer Links?

Ten days ago, I asked if we should consider using the new plugin installer tool in future plugin digests. The poll is now closed and the final tally is 63.24% (86 votes) in favor of the convenient installer links, 15.44% (21 votes) against, and 21.32% (29 votes) don’t mind either way.

Though the poll was largely in favor of the installer links, I’ve decided to postpone my usage of them until a later date due to a valid concern over a third-party site (us) linking directly to an installer. I believe that this issue is further complicated by the fact that the plugin installer tool is currently hosted at Mark Jaquith’s Therefore, I plan to revisit this particular question when the plugin installer tool has been moved to later this year.
