I'm connected to the QGIS plugins repository, using QGIS 1.8.0 on Windows 8.... and although I can see a total of 119 available plugins, I can't see Sextante anywhere in the browser.

I tried downloading the .zip file from and unzipping it into the plugins directory, but then the browser just reports a "broken plugin"....

Does anyone have any ideas?

This seems to be a problem with the Repository .xml. There are no entries listed in the repository browser (alphabetically) below Points2One

see Bug 7279

Hopefully it's fixed soon!
