    Hi Oleg,
    I've just installed this on my 2.5 installation and that went well however, attempting to edit quiz settings results in fatal errors :

    - Warning: require_once(/Users/aparup/mtools/mdkinstances/stable_25/moodle/question/type/poasquestion/hints.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Users/aparup/mtools/mdkinstances/stable_25/moodle/question/behaviour/interactivehints/behaviour.php on line 46

    If is a dependency, it needs to be specified in in the dependencies in version.php. Currently i was able to install it without any notification of the dependency. We should fix that up before approval.

    Also, have you considered Anthony's comment in ?
    The source control URL does not show or lead me to the source code for qbehaviour_interactivehints. I agree with Anthony that it would be best to use the direct URLs to the code repository in you plugin entries.

    Would you like to put your plugin(s) into any set for easier browsing?

    Hi, Aparup.
    I added overlooked dependency on qtype_poasquestion (no way it could be discovered in real situation, as any question type using this behaviour have this dependency anyway) and readme.txt.
    Also I changed link to the repository, currently containing the code. I have one repository for all my Moodle plugins and it's mimics Moodle code structure, so look for it in question/behaviour directory. I don't know a way to clone part of Mercurial repository, so there is no sense to post more direct link - it will be unsuable for getting code throught version control.

    This plugin should be added to two sets - question types, using it: and
