Hello, I recently posted a couple of patches on the illusoft
bugtracker to add multi-uv coord and tangent data export for triangle

Nightst4r, the current maintainer of that project seems to be quite
busy. Perhaps we could talk to him to merge the two codebases under the
bf umbrella to avoid having bugs and patches split between them?

Anyway, here are my patches if anyone wants to pick them up and do
something useful with them:

Export multi-uv:

Export tangents (requires multi-uv):

De-indexing conditioner that uses the plugin code to do COLLADA I/O:

Given the growing amount of interest around COLLADA, I guess the
maintainer should be someone who actually has to use this code
everyday to get his job done. I'm available to help out the maintainer,
but can't take the responsibility of actually maintaining the
code because my use of the exporter is sporadic at best.

I'm up for it. My timezone is GMT.
