It is awesome, it should be in core. I have installed it successfully in 2.5 and am going to use it this term.

Question Creatin Activity for moodle 2.4
In my github repo https://github.com/jmvedrine/qcreate forked from Exabis there is a branch called workinprogress (name say it all ) with the actual state of my work.
I think the "export good questions" will be working in a few days (it is already there but currently all questions are exported because I didn't had time to add the necessary code to lib.php in the qcreate_pluginfile function)
warning: files for backup/restore are here, but aren't finished so would badly crash if you try to backup/restore a course. My suggestion if you want to test the actual state is to simply remove the backup subdir.
Does anybody know how to contact Exabis developers to coordinate our work ?
My problem is that I need to have all the features I need working in a week from now (including French lang files, but fortunately I will only need backup/restore later).
I had French lang files for the 1.9 version, but I can' find them. Moodle 1.9 seems so long ago now ...
The "Export best questions" feature is working now in the "workinprogress" branch and the French lang file is 90% done.
If you try it don't forget to report bugs and problems.
It is good to see that there is continued interest in this module. I hope to have time to chip in and help with the update and maintenance of this module too. I believe that Exabis have made further extensive changes to the code but have not published these on their github yet, I will get in touch with them and alert them to this discussion and see if they will let us know what their plans are.
I think it would be useful to point people coming on that thread that I posted in the "Teaching with Moodle" forum about the version I did for Moodle 2.7 see https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=13707#p1149005
Re-thinking to it, I should have posted this message here in the General Developer Forum, but I as always I did a search and posted a reply to the most recent message on qcreate, not realising I was in the "Teaching with Moodle" forum
It would be interesting that people using one of the previous versions of qcreate for Moodle 2.x (Marcus ?) read this message because I posted about some bugs these versions have.
I tried to contact Exabis and Andreas, but unfortunately I didn't received any response.
I think it would be good to have this activity in the Plugin Directory, but I would prefer to have approval from Jamie, Peter or somebody from Hakodate University and Andreas or somebody from Exabis.
It is great you have updated the module.
I have no objection to it being published in the plugins database. I did object to Exabis plans to add their branding on the icon representing the plug-in in the database which I thought could be a bit misleading.
I will email Peter but am pretty sure he would pretty happy about continued interest in the module too.
Thanks Jamie, That's good news !
My intention is to make clear in the text for the plugin database to give due credits to all contributors of this wonderful Moodle activity plugin.
I am still fighting a bug : when a student delete a question that was already graded the new calculated grade is wrong until a teacher garde or regrade a question created by this student, but once this is fixed I think that if I don't find any other problem the plugin will be ready for a first release.
According to my tests the version for Moodle 1.9 have the same problem if a student delete a graded question.
I will try to contact Peter and Exabis.
