    Alex - Many thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. If you get a chance, I would encourage you to add documentation on Moodle Docs. You may want to take a look at http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_documentation for some helpful suggestions. I have my test server setup to never send any email but I trust that the email is actually getting sent out. One possible improvement would be to make use of Moodle's Messaging API - http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Message_API - and create a message provider for the plugin such that the admin could receive the notifications as popups, via jabber or via email. You may want to keep the existing email settings to email a different email address or tweak them with an option to notify all site admins, notify self, or notify third party. In any case, as one who administers a variety of sites, I can see the utility in getting a notification when a configuration setting has been changed. Keep up the great work and if there is anything I can do to be supportive please do not hesitate to let me know. Peace - Anthony

    Alex - Two minor things I noticed when reviewing the plugin were

    1) the validation warning: Maturity information ($plugin->maturity) not found in version.php

    2) a typo in the language file that shows:
    'Send from firs tname'
    instead of
    'Send from first name'

    It would be great if you could patch those up with an updated version when you get a chance. Peace - Anthony
