It would be great if translations of add-ons (or add-on addons's ( add-on extendin an exting add-on ) could be "connected"

e.g
add-on: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/massalert-send-custom-alerts-to-groups-of-users.9883/

translation: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/massalert-arabic.111/


if the creator of the translation would have a field in the form for the "original add-on", he could set it.
So it would be easier to find all available translations and the add-on coder wouldn't need to manage this too (Maybe it would also be good to have a setting, if he prefers to do this himself, he should be able to disallow this for his add-ons..)

Just like on vb.org ^^

Suggestions: Perhaps a translations block in releases which would display the flag of that country and linking you to the translations release.

Example: Xenmood add-on since it's the primary source for translations the block would only appear once the first language has been posted where the author can link to. So if a Spanish translation been done the author can select a Spanish flag and insert a link to the translated thread.

God knows how this would be developed but there you go, just a half baked idea that just popped into my head.

While uploading a resource, it would be great if we could specify a URL of related resources. For instance I made a widget for the Widget Framework by xfrocks, which is useless on it's own. Inter-linking between two resources for one resource that extends the functionality of another would be helpful.
