No - Nessus.org is the only distribution point for both the
community-submitted plugins, as well the the proprietary plugins we
write at Tenable. Users wishing to submit a plugin should send it to
firstname.lastname@example.org (which is a public mailing list) or
email@example.com (the plugin is reviewed and QA'ed privately and
published in a timely manner).
> Are all of the items on CVS included when doing an automated plugin update?
Yes. The anonymous CVS repository contains all the plugins, although
there is a 7 days delay between the day proprietary plugins are written
and the time they are available to the general public. Feel free to read
the Nessus plugins FAQ at <http://www.nessus.org/plugins/?view=faq> or
to email me directly if you have any question.
